One of remarkable monuments of Sobotište in south-west of Slovakia is the Renaissance-Baroque manor house (also referred to as Veľký or Nyaryi manor) with corner towers.
The manor house Sobotište
It was rebuilt from the original castle and acquired its present appearance after the Rococo-Classicist reconstruction in the second third of the 18th century.
The manor house contains Múzeum of Samuel Jurkovič with exhibition from history of the co-operative movement in Slovakia. Samuel Jurkovič founded Gazdovský spolok, the self-relying crediting co-operative, which was incidentally the second of its kind on the European continent (it followed only three months after the first co-operative was established in Rochdale in England). The Museum also contains and exhibits collections of the Haban pottery, folk costumes and old tools.
