Hadik kastély, TájGazda

Close to the Slovakian board, in the Bódva Valley lays the little village named Tornanádaska. The village and its enviroment has been possessed by the Gyulay Family since the end of 18th century.

The Gyulay Family transformed the already existed gatehouse into a baroque-style castle. After 1879 the village became a property of the Hadik Family. The Hadik heirs renovated the castle and arranged the 7 acres English park. The U-shaped, neobaroque-style building was put into its current shape during these reconstructions.
The medieval building is located within the middle part of the castle. In the basement visitors can find the hall with the timber ceiling. In the course of the expansions, the Hadiks buildt the west side wing, a carriage gateway and a tower. Various inner spaces, staircase covered with wood on the walls, and ornamented glasses keep the memories of old times.
On the forefront of the bouse, in the height of the second floor, two blazons in relief can be seen which are the coat of arms of the Gyulay and Hadik Family. Even Robert Townson, the English world traveler stayed at the castle. The dolinas and holes of the limestone above Nádaske was mentioned at first time in his book.

The area of the park, which is located on the hillside, was filled with soil carried with carriages. In the park many hundreds of species of plants and trees grow. Several plants were brought from foreign countries. The most special plants of the garden are with its 30-40 cm trunk diaeter, the acacia, the cembra pine, the Caucasian silver fir, yews and thuyas. The pont of the park provides a beautiful, calming sight for the visitors. In the garden in front of the main entrance, a Venetian fountain and its pulling contraption from the 15th century is located.
Nowadays, the castle is used as an educational institution and student's hostel. The park is open for the visitors.

In the village, a Presbiteran bell and a Baroque Roman Chatolic Church can be found. The ruins of Kecskevár, which is at the Hungarian-Slovakian board is nearby also. Residents consider these places their own belonging just like people in Szádudvarnoki, Slovakia.
