Tikveš castles

Visits to Tikveš Castle Complex are not possible at present due to construction works. We appreciate your understanding and please obey the signs at the construction site. 

Tikveš Castle Complex is a complex surrounded by a forest-park within which several buildings are located: a New Castle with annex building, an Old Castle, a chapel and other facilities with a restaurant.

The history of this area is connected to the management of natural resources documented in historical records from 1697, when the emperor Leopold I granted the property to prince Eugene of Savoy. The complex dates from the 19th century and was built by the Teschen line of the Habsburg family. During history, the castles served as a hunting center for the guests of the court and the monarchs and became famous in the whole of Europe and worldwide.

The center will have a uniquely formed layout with the goal to educate visitors about the natural characteristics of Kopački rit and the importance to preserve such an area.

The projects is co-financed by the EU from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) as part of the Operational Programme Competitiveness and Cohesion. The expected year for the completion of works is 2021.
