HUNGUEST HOTEL PALOTA, LILLAFÜRED
Almásy Castle in Gyula
We promised you some interesting facts about a remarkable place, Lillafüred. Where does the name of this place come from? Which world-famous architect contributed to this gem? How did the Russian army destroy the interior of the castle?
We wish you a pleasant reading 🙂
The name Lillafüred comes from Count András Bethlen, Minister of Agriculture of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy, who discovered a place of enchanting beauty during a hunting trip in 1892 and named it after his beloved Miss Lilla.
From the opening until 1944, guests came mainly from the elites of the time.
At the end of World War II, a military hospital was established in the castle for wounded Russian soldiers. Although the building itself was not significantly damaged during the war, the operation of the hospital in its original luxury equipment caused irreparable damage. After the war, the rights related to the operation were transferred to the Bükk Spas. In 1993, the building became the property of the Hunguest Hotels hotel chain, and then the entire complex was renovated, modernized and significantly expanded. In 2015, Hotel Palota was included in the Hungarian National Cultural Heritage.
HUNGUEST Hotel Palota is located in Lillafüred, 10 km from Miskolc. Built in an eclectic style between 1927 and 1930, the castle is surrounded by a hanging garden and a large park. The view of Szinva Creek and Hámori Lake is further enhanced by the murmur of the Szinva Creek Waterfall in the immediate vicinity of the hotel.
