Vajdahunyad Castle (Vajdahunyadvár)
This is a fairy-tale-like, unusual building. It was originally designed as a temporary structure for the Millenary Exhibition (see Heroes' Square) which opened in the City Park in 1896. The idea was to present in one building the different architectural styles which could be found in Hungary. The structure was rebuilt in a permanent form in 1907.
A section of the building is a copy of part of the original Vajdahunyad Castle in Transylvania from which the whole complex of buildings takes its name.
In the courtyard is the Romanesque wing and the Chapel of Ják, a copy of the still-standing 13C Benedictine church at Ják in western Hungary, one of the country's oldest monuments, though in fact only the decorated doorway is an exact copy.
The Museum of Agriculture is located inside the main building "Baroque" building.
Just to the south of Vajdahunyad Castle stands the first statue of George Washington to be erected in Europe, in 1906. The statue was paid for by donations collected by various Hugarian-American societies in the USA.
