Literary Fund - logoBuilt in 1889 for Count Jan Pálffy, Budmerice Mansion is one of the very few Romantic buildings in Slovak territory, the ideological roots and architectural expression of which originated from the study of foreign examples of historical architecture. Set in an extensive park, it is a typical example of historical eclecticism.

After the Second World War Budmerice Manor House was given to the Literary Fund which turned it into the Home of Slovak Writers. The house itself has since been extensively restored and refurbished, and new conference facilities added.

With its pleasant natural surroundings, it now serves not only as a place where writers can work or relax, but also as a venue for educational activities, conferences, seminars and other events. Various cultural, scholarly and educational events are held in the spacious conference hall, period saloons and other rooms.
