The Archives of Zemplén County are located on the top floor of the north wing. The Baroque-style furniture was made by local craftsmen. Writer and historiographer Antal Szirmay (1747–1812) laid out the organization of the archive. Its earliest document is a deed of gift from Erzsébet Kun, the widow of Stephen V from 1272.
Ferenc Kazinczy, the famous Hungarian writer and neologist (inventor of new words) was appointed as the county’s main archivist from 1816 to 1831. By systematically organizing the documents, he created especially valuable collections.
The Kazinczy statue made by Pál Pátzay in 1968 is located in the inner court of the city hall.
