The history of the Kaštieľ Kubínyi dates back to the first half of the 17th century, when Beňadik Kubínyi built a renaissance mansion with large park on foundations of older building’s ruins. Typical onion-shaped towers, however, were built during the baroque rebuilding that took place in the middle of the 18th century. In the 19th century, the building was modified in classicistic style, and on the façade of the Chateau the coats of arms of the Kubínyi and Adda families were added.
In the half of the 20th century (1948), the mansion was taken away from Kubínyi’s family. In 1989 was Kubínyi family again able to get the mansion back into their possession, but for the lack of funds for maintaining the building was family forced to sell it. Since then, the mansion has been dilapidated under the ownership of several people, until the current owners have bought it in very poor condition in 2010.
