Vajdahunyad Castle, Budapest

Vajdahunyad Castle was built between 1896 and 1908, designed by Ignác Alpár.
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.

Pictures were taken on July 4th, 2011
