Photographer's Note

The Nádasdy Mansion is a Tudor-romantic style manor house designed by István Linzbauer and Alajos Hauszmann situated on 24 hectares in Nádasdladány, Hungary. It dates from 1873-1876, and belonged to the Nádasdy family.

Nádasdladány, Nádasdy House Nádasdy House, which was designed after 16th-century English and Scottish castles, is a real architectural curiosity in Hungary. Although its exterior has an air of antiquity, it was in fact built between 1873 and 1876, and almost all the technological innovations of the age were included in it. The rooms were equipped with talking tubes (the forerunners of the telephone) and were heated with an air heating system, while gas lamps lit the halls. The most remarkable hall in the Castle, the Hall of the Elders, recalls the distant past with its vast marble fireplace. The walls are covered with beautifully carved wainscots, and we can see the illustrious members of the more than 500-year-old Nádasdy family depicted in the paintings. Nowadays, in the ground-level rooms of the House, one can see interiors that recall the milieu of the aristocratic world.
