The Somló Castle, which was first mentioned in 1352 but likely built after the Mongol Invasion of Hungary in 1241-1242, will see a complete renovation with additional developments.

“The openings in the walls will be excavated, the internal walkway will be restored, the partitions and doors will be reconstructed, the courtyard will be paved, drainage will be built, and a green area will be created,” said Tamás Glázer, the managing director of Nemzeti Heritage Protection Development Nonprofit Kft.

He also added that “Veszprém county has a prominent place in the field of the renewal of castles and chateaux, as the Sümeg castle and the bishop’s palace, the castle of Nagyvázsony, and the castle of Várpalota will await visitors in a renewed form.”
