  • We cannot say enough about the Vajdahunyad Castle. It is magnificent on the outside and the grounds are gorgeous. Truly gorgeous. Inside, I would not have expected the Agriculture Museum to be a highl...  more »
  • We went twice, the first time on our own and then for a tour. It's overrated. If you go in passing it goes, but it's not necessary.

  • A magical castle surrounded by water in the park was used in an old Dracula movie, we were in autumn and the trees were of charming colors. The castle is beautiful and well-dressed in the outside statues, note the statue of Bella Lugosi, Dracula the first, at the corner of the castle. They didn't come in because there was an exhibition inside and the entrance was a fee, it's a good idea to check in advance what events take place in the castle and when.

  • 1 Euro to get into the higher tower with a tour! The view is beautiful as well. Nice grounds to walk around and see other things. Wear good walking shoes. This location is not central so plan to spend time getting there (40 min from old city)
  • Vajdahunyad castle gives home for many different shows / exposures time to time which are worth to visit. Although you can't visit the entire castle you can walk through its awesome yard, sit down the shore of its tiny lake which are a very relaxing timepiece.
  • A wonderful building surrounded by water, the way it looks outside, it looks inside. Just breathtaking and makes you feel in the very moment. The flora wrapping it just adds the touch to its simply amazing looks 🤗
  • Nice little castle with lots of interesting point to see around it. Definitely worth a visit even if you are in Budapest more than 24 hours.
  • This is like a fairy tale castle and it is free to see from the outside. What a wonderful place for a picnic. Threats also peddle busts here. Worth a visit.
