Kéked Mansion



 

Kéked is one of the smallest, and one of the most attractive villages in the Zemplén Mountains.   The village has managed to preserve its tiny traditional cottages almost in their entirety. The 15th-16th century, Gothic style Melczer Mansion, can be found in the centre of the village. The portion of the mansion built in the 16th century was rebuilt in the 17th century. At this time new wings were added, the courtyard was enclosed, and two cylindrical, Italian-style bastions were added, thus strengthening it.

It acquired its present form during the 17th-19th centuries. The restorations, which commenced in 1979, and which also included the restoration of the mansard roof and the chimney system, have striven to retain the mansion’s 17th century appearance. Today the mansion operates as a hotel.
