Vajdahunyad Castle (Hungarian: Vajdahunyad vára) is a castle in the City Park of Budapest, Hungary. It was built between 1896 and 1908 as part of the Millennial Exhibition which celebrated the 1000 years of Hungary since the Hungarian Conquest of the Carpathian Basin in 896. The castle was designed by Ignác Alpár to feature copies of several landmark buildings from different parts the Kingdom of Hungary, especially the Hunyad Castle in Transylvania (now in Romania). As the castle contains parts of buildings from various time periods, it displays different architectural styles: Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque. Originally it was made from cardboard and wood, but it became so popular that it was rebuilt from stone and brick. Today it houses the Agricultural Museum.

This is a nice church and you choose an excellent point of view (even if it would have been better without the light lamp on the right!).

Bonjour, cher Ovidiu,
Au cours du début du vingtième siècle, les architectes se sont largement inspirés des styles de différentes époques.
Cela donne des effets étonnants quant au résultat architectural.
Très intéressante note et très bonne présentation.

What a cool place. So unusual to see so many styles combined, but they combine so well to creat a very harmonious whole. The fine gothic windows caught my eye first. Love you composition, the flowers in the foreground look wondful and really add to the scene. Great shot, thanks or sharing.

J'aime beaucoup ce point de vue, comme caché derrière les belles fleurs de la plate bande ainsi que la contre plongée qui donne de l'ampleur au bâtiment. Par contre tu aurais pu éviter le projecteur sur la droite.

una bella rappresentazione di questo castello insertito in un contesto di verde e di fiori.
Bello il taglio verticale che esalta la sua struttura e molto buoni il contrasto e la saturazion e.
Eccellente anche le nitidezza.
Complimenti per l'ottimo lavoro.
Ciao e buona domenica

A very well composed shot, which uses the f/g plants as an interesting lead to the focal castle, viewed from a good angle, to reveal its many styles. I find it amazing to think it was once built in cardboard!
I'm glad you were able to include those figures, both for scale and human interest.
My warm regards,

Really beautiful place, the fascinating castle.
Splendid colors and low point of view.
Excellent composition and presentation.

your framing and the low-angle shot enhance the elegant lines and the beautiful architectural shapes of this castle, in a nice perspective towards the sky.
I like the good light, the nice shades, the sharpness, and the chromatic quality of the composition.

This is exactly a church and not an castle, but you was there for to see.
You chose an excellent angle this cares for depth and perspective.
Wonderful panoramic view about these area.
Excellent composition, lovely colours, nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

Wonderful natural colours and finely detailed shot with the historic castle majestically fills the spot so well exposed along with some nice foreground interest taking the eyes through the picture. There's a good contrast too and in turn beautifies the whole the scene. Credit to your attention to detail making this a great photographic works, Well done.
