This castle is amazing. It's beauty in art work and architecture stands out. There was a food festival on when we arrived, not really into goulash. Inside the castle is amazing, goes back over a lot of history . From the outside of the building, it kind of reflects as 'Dracula's castle'. Well worth a visit. It's beside Heroes square... More

Apparently this place was built out of wood and canvas as a temporary exhibition many decades ago but people enjoyed it so much that it was turned into a permanent feature. Can't vouch for the inside as we just had an amble around the outside on a beautiful, clear, frosty day.

Our visit here was a bit rushed as we only had 3 days in the city. I would have liked to have spent more time looking around the courtyard. Lovely looking Castle though!

I nearly didn't come here as it was a long way from where I was staying near Liberty Bridge, but I am so glad that I did. The castle is absolutely stunning from every angle. The architecture is beautiful. The anonymous statue within the ground is great to see. It really made my day coming here and was a great... More

This is an amazing castle with its own portcullis! Thoroughly enjoyed exploring the cast which was quite a mixture of architecture. Great photo opportunities and looked fabulous when lit up at night

It's very recommended. You can have a rest under the shadows of the Városliget park, the same close to Szecheny baths and zoo. Restaurants, and nice social life around this Castle. I couldn't see in the night but it might be beautiful as well.

The castle of Vajdahunyad combines many architectural styles, built for Budapest Expo around 1900. Location, experience very unique. Great for a walk, easy parking. Ice skating in the winter, boating in the summer around the castle.

We looked forward to visiting this building but was slightly disappointed. It is like a fairytale building and seeing the ice skating in the moat was picturesque but our visit was very short, didnt take long to look around. We did start to take a walk around the park but there was quite a few homeless there, settled in small... More

Maybe it was due to the cloudy sky but I found it had a mysterious aura. The combination of architectures make it very special. I couldn't visit the museum because it was to late but even for an ouside visit it worth it !
