Vajdahunyad Castle, Budapest City park
If you are in Budapest take a look at this very unique castle in the City Park called Vajdahunyad Castle next to Heroes' square. It is a great place for the whole family to visit. It was built between 1896 and 1908 as part of the Millennial Exhibition which celebrated the 1000 years of Hungary since the Hungarian Conquest of the Carpathian Basin in 896. The castle was designed by Ignác Alpár to feature copies of several landmark buildings from different parts of the kingdom of Hungary, especially the Hunyad Castle in Transylvania (now in Romania). As the castle contains various time periods, it displays different architectural styles: Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque. Originally it was made from cardboard and wood, but it became so popular that it was rebuilt from stone and brick. Today it houses the Agricultural Museum.
