One option for relaxing in a pleasant environment is to visit the Renaissance manor house of the noble Apponyi family which has been converted into a luxurious hotel with a covered pool, whirlpool and a wide range of wellness services. A visit to the manor house would not be completed without a visit to the famous Baroque library of the ancient Apponyi family, the shelves of which contain precious volumes including the works of the Roman popes, the private correspondence of French kings, Cardinals Richelieu and Mazarina, Joan of Arc, and rare originals from Machiavelli, Bernini, Da Vinci, Goethe and Schiller. Given its character and collection the Apponyi library is clearly the pearl among Slovakia's libraries and is beyond compare.
