CAFÉ PAULINA

The enormous manorial kitchen was popular in the Bajna mansion. The remains of the previous aristocratic kitchen's surviving furnishings date from the second half of the 19th century. Café Paulina is open to even those entering the mansion without a ticket.

GETTING THERE

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

Bajna is 46 kilometres northwest of Budapest, by the main road connecting Esztergom with Tatabánya. (Tatabánya is 25 km away, while Esztergom is 21 km away.) 

Take the Zsámbék exit on the M1 motorway and keep going through Zsámbék and Szomor, or take the Budakeszi-Páty-Zsámbék-Szomor route. 

BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT

You can get there by taking a long-distance bus from Széll Kálmán Square, and during weekdays from Kelenföld Station. 

PARKING

There is no car park in the grounds of the mansion park. Parking here is only possible for the differently abled.

Parking is available in the Main Square of Bajna and in the immediate vicinity of the mansion, a mere 5 minutes away.

ACCESSIBILITY

The entire ground floor section of the main building of the mansion is accessible.
