The idea of creating a visitor center at Castle Gyulavári started from the desire
of renovation, conservation and rehabilitation of the region and the importance
of present values, environment, nature, craftsmanship, culture and ethnography.
All these are also reflected in this residence of the former nobility.
In other words, make them known to visitors who past these lands and prove
them that the quality of rehabilitation and renovation in order to evoke the past
and transfer it into the present and future, the cultural development is worth
investing if our goal keeps growing.
Our goal is to strengthen the knowledge about the Great Sothern Plains Region,
to demonstrate not only towards our local population but also to our guests and
visitors, that our ancient roots are full of importance to the people who live now
on these lands, to strengthen the sense of national identity and its importance, to

Three major concepts try to unite the ideology of the castle: tradition, culture
and continuous development. This triumvirate is a logical result of the concept
and hopefully we will succeed joining culture with tradition and development in
the following years.
The tradition is celebrated in an exhibition of Hungarian artisans and craftsmen
by presenting handicraft and art crafts of various minorities that live from their
work and influence these places. In the cultural concept idea, this presentation
receives particular importance, as all works of art are from artists and painters
living in our region. Through these programs and objects and works of art
presented, we are trying to reach other branches of art in general.
Concerning the continuous development and issues related to it, we try to
present the natural values of the region: waters, forests, flora and fauna. What
we would like to bring to people's attention is the importance of small bio
households, which could be essential in this typical agricultural environment.
With the guidance of the Great Sothern Plain Region Program this could be a
very accessible niche in terms of development.
The conference room created in the Gyulavári Castle enables the possibility to
organize meetings and conferences and spread and promote organic agriculture.
Besides this, the information center of the Gyulavári Castle functions as an
information center regarding the environmental tourism and values of natural
tourism. The more we are aware of our environment and the importance of its
conservation and preservation, the better.
