Shoenborn Castle

Shoenborn Castle


Shoenborn Castle was built in the 19th century as a hunting lodge of the counts Shoenborn. Hunting was always a popular entertainment with aristocracy, and the Carpathians with their untouched nature and wildlife were extremely suitable for hunters. Austrian masters the Schoenborns, had taken fancy to hunting near the village of Chinadievo. For that purpose, they first built a wooden hunting seat, which was changed into a palace in 1890. The palace is built in the style of Romanticism with elements of gothic, the architectural trend fashionable at the turn of the 19th-20th centuries.

Between spire-topped towers there are high funnels. It is interesting that their number corresponds with the number of weeks in a year — 52, while there are 365 windows in the palace, and 12 entrances (equal to the number of days and months in a year, accordingly). No doubt this original idea corresponds with the spirit of Romanticism too.

A large and picturesque park is laid out around the tie, with beeches, spruces, sakuras, cork pines, and other rare trees planted here. Today, a sanatorium «Karpaty» operates in this castle. Here you’ll enjoy the healing Carpathian air, relaxing atmosphere of blooming park, and become more young and beautiful with sip of water from «Spring of beauty».
