About
The baroque-classicist manor house in Svaty Anton (St. Anton) was built at the route connecting Southern Balkan with Cracow and northern Baltic Sea. Inspired by the symbolic of the calendar, the building has 4 entrances, 7 arcades, 12 chimneys, 52 rooms and 365 windows. A number of famous European architects and artists participated in its building and decorating. The Kohary and Coburg families made an essential contribution to the history of the manor house. Here, they concentrated beautiful pieces of furniture, artwork and crafts from all around the world. Elderly people in the village still remember its last user - Bulgarian Tsar (emperor) Ferdinand Coburg, who lived here in exile until 1944. The manor house is a museum of art, history and hunting.

Nicely kept manor with a huge park
Sep 2020
It was very nice to visit the place again after many years. It offers only guided tours, you cannot enter on your own. We had a bigger group, but people tried to keep social distancing. The interior is still great, rooms are beautifully preserved. Its a pity pictures cannot be taken. We visited the park after our tour, its gorgeous. Big, nicely kept. Overall we enjoyed our time spent there very much.

Don’t be put off by the exterior or grounds or the fact that you may not have an English speaking guide. The info for each room is printed in English so you can read for yourself.
Rooms are amazingly restored and a more enjoyable experience than the tourist packed Schoenbrunn Palace in Vienna.

Very interesting house and stories of the people who lived there
Nov 2018 • Couples
We enjoyed our visit here very much. Arrive before the hour, as I think you can only enter with a guide, and they commence the tour on the hour. After seeing so many churches, government buildings, and small buildings, this was something a bit different to do. Some really beautiful and interesting things to see from many periods/styles, including furniture, wall paper, clothing, artworks, collectables, all sorts of household items like a beautiful picnic set, as well as the chapel and the hunting exhibition. We enjoyed the guided tour - our guide knew a lot about the house and the families, had good English and a good sense of humour.

Svaty Anton Palace

We took the tour and it was nice they have a English version of the tour and the self guided tour of the hunting museum > It was a nice side trip . I pointed out to the guide and security that there was a mouse sitting o a antique chair eating it and no one seemed to care. The tour guide did the tour in Slovak and English finally I told him we will follow along in the English guide book to save the time and only ask questions as need be. I went more to see the Hunting museum and the whole tour took about an hour . The lady at the admission booth was abrupt to say the least. Also not handicapped friendly

Palace like building in the midst of nowhere where the nobility used to hunt and have their parties. Very well restored and worth taking a tour

Beautiful manor
Jun 2017 • Family
Manor house in Svaty Anton is a real gem. Outside is just a big, beaufiful and simple building. There is also interesting park with lake, sculptures,small bridges and roses. To visit unterior you should join one of the guided tours. However, most of tours are in Slovak language. Luckily, Slovak belongs to Slavic group of languages so I could understand most of it. Ludy that was our guide was funny and she knows many interesting stories and gossips about previous owners of this manors and their guests. Furniture is really well preserved, There is a small and big tour and zoological exposition and hunting rooms are free of charge. We did not have much time so we decided to take shorter version.

A MUST when in the area !! very interesting !!
I am so happy, I went to visit this place.
For me, it was the most interesting place of all of Banska Bystrica area ! It is like an old palace, all artifacts in great condition.
There is a guided tour in the place 1-1.30 hour, only in Slovak, no English. However, I do recommend it, since they will give you a booklet with photos and very good explanation about every room in the place.
Great place, full of history.

Hidden treasure
Aug 2016 • Family
The village of Svätý Anton is hidden away in the hills of Štiavnické vrchy and that adds to the value of the Chateux. Owned various aristocrats, of whom the most notable are the Coburgs. The last Bulgarian Emperor, Ferdinand Coburg, spent a part of his life in the chateux and the region.
Chateux is almost intact and the collections are very authentic and rich. It is miraculous that they were preserved, despite 70 years of Communist and anti-aristocratic governance in 20th century. The chapel is one of the most amazing and wonderful spots in the estate.
Currently exhibits a smaller hunting collection of wild animals as well as extensive historic collection.
