Vajdahunyad Castle (Hungary)

Budapest     See list of castles in Ungheria

Unlike other castles, inhabited by real, Vajdahunyad Castle (Vajdahunyad vára) houses a museum of agriculture. The structure was erected for the celebrations of the millennium of the Hungarian state in 1896, like many other great buildings of Budapest. If you look at the building in all its grandeur from the opposite shore of the lake, you can see why they call it bunk.

The interiors are worth a visit to admire the marble staircase, carved columns, crystal chandeliers and stained glass windows.

The agricultural museum housed within the walls is the largest in Europe and boasts many interesting exhibits. The Hungarian agricultural history from the beginnings to 1945 provides information on activities and agricultural vehicles from the Age Neolithic to modern times and includes interactive activities for children. Other exhibitions illustrate the exploitation of animals and the development of hunting, fishing and forestry in Hungary, exposing tools of the trade and works of art that represent the different jobs.
