Vajdahunyad Castle

Vajdahunyad Castle, or Vajdahunyad vara, is a castle in City Park, Budapest, Hungary, that was built between 1896 and 1908, designed by Ignac Alpar. It is a copy in part of a castle in Transylvania, Romania, that is also called Vajdahunyad, though it is also a display of different architectural styles: Romanic, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque.

Originally it was made from cardboard and wood for the millennial exhibition in 1896 but it became so popular that it was rebuilt from stone and brick. Today it houses the Agricultural Museum.
