Füzérradvány, Károlyi House Although the exterior of the Károlyi House, which is surrounded by the woods of Füzérradvány, recalls a romantic atmosphere, one can find a genuine Italian renaissance milieu in its splendid rooms. Its beautiful stone-carvings, marble fireplaces, door posts, and embossments that used to decorate Italian renaissance palaces were made by 16th- and 17th-century Florentine maestri. At the end of the 19th century, László Károlyi, the lord of the House, and his wife decided to change their home into a genuine renaissance style. They collected renaissance and baroque pieces of decoration and furniture for almost two decades. They bought articles usually from one of the most famous antiquaries of the time: among them were stone carvings (which were built in the walls of the House), fireplaces, and also furniture and articles for personal use, which were also genuine Italian renaissance works of art. Unfortunately, several of these were lost after the Second World War; however, some were brought back in the 1990s when the castle was reopened for visitors. On the first floor of the House, which is being renovated at the moment, one can find rooms (the former kitchen, the dining room, the salon and the bedroom of the count, and the bathroom with a marble pool) the interior of which recalls an atmosphere of the aristocratic world.
A füzérradványi erdők ölelte Károlyi-kastély kívülről ugyan a romantika hangulatát árasztja, ám pompás termeiben hamisítatlan itáliai reneszánsz fogadja az érkezőket. Míves kőfaragványai, márványkandallói, ajtókeretei, domborművei a 16-17. századi firenzei mesterek munkái, amelyek hajdan itáliai reneszánsz palotákat díszítettek. A 19. század végén ugyanis a kastély ura, Károlyi László és hitvese úgy döntött, hogy eredeti reneszánsz világot varázsolnak otthonukba. Csaknem két évtizedig gyűjtötték a reneszánsz és kora barokk díszítő elemeket és berendezési tárgyakat.
