Bear Home

The only bear sanctuary in Central Europe which was opened in Veresegyház, on the 24th November 1998. The 39 brown bears can play in the 3.5-hectare continuous enclosure of the ensemble, which covers 5.5 hectares. In the summer of 2000, based on the technology already proven for bears, the enclosure for wolves was created. One and a half hectares of wooded land with lush vegetation was given to the 18 European grey wolves who moved in for the first time. The bear home area can be walked around with the guidance of qualified carers and, to make the experience more memorable, we can even feed the bears with apples and honey. In the autumn of 2009, to the delight of the visitors, the wooden high lookout tower was completed, from which the whole bear enclosure can be clearly seen.
The Bear Home awaits its Dear Visitors every day of the year from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. (until dark in winter), even on bank holidays!

Lakes, Nature trails

The water of the streams originating in the catchment area of the Gödöllő hills is collected by the Sződrákosi stream, which also crosses Veresegyház. Along the stream is the four-part lake, the oldest of which is the Old Lake. One part of the water surface, formerly called Mill Lake, operates as a beach, the other part is a fishing paradise. Its upper part is a nature reserve. This part of the lake is special because of the nationally rare floating bogs native to its area and the water lilies that bloom in the summer.

As the sixth element of the Budapest Learning Trails series, the hiking trail in the area was established by the local Water Lily Environmental and Nature Protection Association with the professional support of the Duna-Ipoly National Park and WWF Hungary. In order to help raise environmental awareness, the aim of the educational trail is to introduce the wetlands of Veresegyház, with special emphasis on the ecological processes and the nature-shaping activities of humans. A key objective is to present in plain language what the effects of humans’ landscape use are on the environment.

Grassalkovich Castle

Hungary’s Baroque castle with the largest floor area was built around 1735 by one of the most prestigious Hungarian lords of the eighteenth century, Count Antal Grassalkovich (1694–1771). The unique architectural solutions of the building served as a model for Hungarian Baroque castles. In 1867, the second heyday of the building began.

The conservation works of the castle, which is still state-owned, started in 1985. As a result, the first permanent exhibition of the Castle Museum was opened in 1996: the ceremonial hall and royal apartments. Since then, the exhibition has been enriched with new rooms. In 2003 the Baroque Theatre was finished, and in 2004 the restoration of the Királydombi Pavilion was completed. In 2010, with the support of the European Union, the Gisela and Rudolf wings bearing the names of royal children regained their former splendor, part of the castle park was renewed, and then the reconstruction of the riding hall and the baroque stable was completed.

Due to its historical traditions, colourful cultural programme and uniquely representative, renewed spaces, Gödöllő Castle is today one of Hungary’s most attractive and exciting institutions and buildings.

The two-storey Baroque shrine church, the monastery building, unique in Hungary, is considered an extremely interesting attraction.

In the family tomb of the lower temple we can see the huge marble sarcophagus created artistically for them. In the upper church, a copy of the statue of Mary of Loreto was placed , carved from black cedar wood, which Capuchin monks brought on foot from Loreto. The smallest statue of the country (11 cm high, 4 cm wide) can also be found here, making Máriabesnyő a famous pilgrimage site.
