Sándor–Metternich Mansion, Bajna

One of Hungary’s most beautiful classicist mansion complexes, the Mansion of the Devil’s Horseman, i.e. the Sándor–Metternich Mansion, is located in Komárom-Esztergom County, at the highest point of the settlement of Bajna.

Architect József Hild drew up the plans for the hunting lodge built on the Bajna estate – in the eastern part of the Gerecse region – around 1720, as part of a 19th-century reconstruction and enlargement, which included a one-story, classicist-style building with a rectangular floor plan for the main wing and a ground floor plan for the side wings. It is often called the Mansion of the Devil’s Horseman, with reference to Count Móric Sándor. In England, people stated, “He is not human, he is a devil.” His hair-raising equestrian achievements reverberated throughout Budapest and Vienna. In the British Isles, he established several world records. He even leaped from his own mansion’s balcony and, according to legend, frequently rode within the mansion’s walls.

Owing to the developments, the main building, the forecourt and the gardens of the mansion have become a high-quality event venue. Outdoor venues can be covered with a tent on request, thus becoming suitable for larger events, performances, corporate events, chamber music concerts, family events, wedding ceremonies, or exclusive events even of international significance.  The chapel is an excellent choice for modest baptisms and weddings. Museum pedagogical sessions, as well as children’s birthday and name-day celebrations can be organised at the mansion café.

The beautified exterior and interior of the mansion having undergone period restoration, may also be the perfect venue for filming and thematic photography.
