Vajdahunyad vára

Vajdahunyad Castle was built in Városliget in 1908. Basing his design on the classic Transylvanian Gothic model, Ignác Alpár created it for the millennial celebrations of 1896 with the goal of embodying 1,000 years of Hungarian architecture. Originally, it was a temporary construction of wood, but it was so popular that it was recreated in stone and brick by 1908. The castle today is home to the Museum of Agriculture. The building stands on an artificial island in the Városliget Lake and is accessible via four bridges. The statue of medieval chronicler Anonymous sits in its interior courtyard.
