Built in neo-romantic style, combining Romanesque and Gothic motifs. The hunting palace was built by Gresserson around the theme of the calendar - 365 windows (the number of days in a year), 52 chimneys (number of weeks per year), and 12 external entrances (number of months). Outside the palace is decorated with stained glass on religious themes, arms, vanes and carvings, turret clock with chimes. Inside the palace there are also some interesting decorative elements, and one of the rooms is preserved in its original form: here you can see the fireplace, surrounded by antique tiles, wooden staircase and fancy chandelier in the form of a mermaid with antlers (some furniture and other items were transferred to Uzhgorod museum). Legend says that reichsmarschall Hermann Goering wanted to buy the palace once.
