The Ozora castle was built in the 15th century by Filippo Buondelmonti degli Scolari (also known as Pippo Spano), Italian magnate, general, strategist and confidant of King Sigismund of Hungary.
Being one of the few Renaissance buildings, the castle is a real gem. The castle was able to survive through ages, despite of all the Ottoman – Hungarian Wars in the Middle Ages.
Currently, tastefully reconstructed and furnished Renaissance Ozora castle is a hidden gem in the region. The castle is well maintained, has lots of interesting things to see.
The castle provide a nice guided tour which starts with the medieval kitchen full of the fragrance of lavender. Then you get stuck again in the court under the renaissance loggia with lots of blooming plants and have to spend at least five minutes there to take photos.
The tour continues on the first floor with the bedroom, the throne room, the weapon room, the dining room and the chapel with a relic of St. George. All this is displayed with authentic furniture and accessories.
The second part of the exhibition brought us back to the Baroque. Even the smallest things are carefully designed and suit the atmosphere of the castle and the Renaissance and Baroque eras.
