Pictures in the Tower
Wooden spiral stairs lead up to the tower of the castle. Each and every square centimetre of the first floor is covered by beautiful frescoes from the 18th century. The top floor recalls the old flair of the town with the help of its slide collection.
It was one of the former owners, György Szluha, who ordered the inauguration of the tower room on the first floor in the middle of the 18th century from Joseph Ignaz Mildorfer, who studied at the painters’ academy in Vienna. The room was most probably destined as a place of silent retraction. The room, which copies the inauguration of the ceremonial room of the royal library in Vienna, recalls the less known era of the history of the castle with its allegoric depictions.
The second floor features pieces from the colourful slide collection of the Ferenc Nádasdy Museum which recall the 1960ies and 1970ies. Sárvár stood at the borderline of two eras, the developments began to unfold, quarters were built, the castle restored, however, the flair of earlier decades could still be felt.
