Edelény



 

The small town of Edelény is located in the northeastern part of Hungary, in Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén county, about 30 km north of Miskolc city. Edelény's principal attraction is the L'Huillier-Coburg Palace, which is one of the most notable palaces in Hungary.

The L'Huillier-Coburg Palace in Edelény was built between 1716 and 1730 by Ferenc János L'Huillier. It is the seventh-largest palace in Hungary. It is this country’s pre-eminent example of early-baroque architecture. The palace is U-shaped, with a three-storeyed, flat-roofed central wing - flanked by cylindrical towers at the corners - and two single-storeyed, mansard roofed, side wings.

As an unusual solution, the open-end of the U-shaped building was faced towards the park, and the ancillary buildings, which formed an arch, were built-on to the two side-wings - thus enclosing two formal courtyards.

The Borsodi earthen fortification served as one of the most important strategic centres of the Hungarian Conquerors, up to the time of the Tartar invasion.

Located in the vicinity of the fortification, the Borsod House of Regional Folk Art has several small exhibitions on display.

The present Gothic style Calvinist church in Edelény was originally raised by the Catholics in 1330, but taken-over by the Calvinists in 1580. A stone tower was erected in front of its western façade in 1696.
