A Castle of Many Styles

Inside the City Park in Budapest is a castle or rather a couple of castles glued together. Vajdahunyad Castle, or Vajdahunyad-vár is a part copy of a castle in Transylvania, Romania, but it also have four different architectural styles: Romanic, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque. It was built in cardboard and wood for an exhibition in 1896 but was so popular that it was later rebuilt in brick and stone. The photo show one of the statues inside of the politician Károlyi Sándor.
