The history of the Orlové Manor-House is linked with the history of the Považský hrad Castleand other aristocratic mansions in Považské Podhradie – all this represents the continuity of the Balassa settlements in the Považie Region.
At last, Ondrej’s son Pavol II. Balassa is credited with rebuilding the Castle. In the first third of the 18th century, the Orlové Manor-House, as the seat of the Považská Bystrica branch of the Balassa family, was significantly modified to a Baroque building and was enlarged. In 1721, Pavol II. Balassa was promoted by King Charles IV. to the count status due to his duties to the royal crown and the high duties he performed in the service of Empress Maria Theresa.
The result of the reconstruction was also a unique late Baroque chapel with a rococo oratory in the western wing of the Manor-House on the ground floor. The Chapel was dedicated to Saint John of Nepomuk who is depicted on the main altar painting. There are rare objects and paintings of a high historical value in the Chapel. Among them is an organ dated back to the 19th century, which is a cultural monument registered in the Monuments Fund of the Slovak Republic. It is still functional today and is used for worships and wedding ceremonies that are held in the Hotel.
In the second half of the 19th century, the owners of the Orlové estate often changed. Princess Charlotte Mayláth, the wife of Prince of Hohenlohe-Schillingsfürst, a high senior official of the imperial court in Vienna, bought the mansion with the surrounding estate from Jozef Lord. Prince of Hohenlohe-Schillingsfürst stayed in the Orlové manor rarely because of his duties in Vienna. In 1915, Charlotte Mayláth sold the Orlové estate together with the manor-house to Jan Kubelík, a well-known Czech composer and violin virtuoso.The unique violinist was known for his tenderness and the ease that he reached with a tightly strung bow. He played the world-famous 1715 ‚Emperor‘ Stradivarius violin. Nowadays the Manor-House is the seat of the Hotel Gino Park Palace, which offers accommodation, a café, a lobby bar with a summer terrace, a restaurant with author’s recipes, lounges, a wellness and fitness centre, a chapel, a wedding gazebo, and a historical park.
