The Castle Association is looking for a group of up to 15 history enthusiasts who would be interested in taking part the conservation and archeology work between August 1-7.
Szadvar was part of the chain of medieval fortifications guarding Western Christiandom from the Turkish invasion. In 1685 the Imperial Army blew it up in order to prevent it falling into rebel hands.

The summer activities will focus on restoring the northern wall of the outer courtyard and surveying the ground at five different locations.
