Similar to Fisherman's Bastion, Vajdahunyad Castle in Budapest is much younger than it looks. 🏰
It was built in 1896 out of wood and cardboard to mark 1000 years since the Hungarian Conquest of the Carpathian Basin. 🇭🇺 Due to it's popularity, it was remade out of sturdier building materials between 1904 - 1908.
Vajdahunyad Castle provides a beautiful backdrop for the Budapest City Park. Here you can also visit the zoo, pack a picnic or hire a boat and cruise along the lake as you take it all in. 🚣♀️🚣
