We of course had to take a tour, in Hungarian, but they were kind enough to give us a translation on paper. Pictures had to be taken on the move, but everybody, especially the tour guide, was pretty patient with me, even after I accidentally set off some alarm by leaning too far over the barrier. We saw 19 rooms in total, seven of which were prohibited for photography due to some exhibition. I can't wait to go back in a year or so to see how far they've come in the restoration. This really only began in earnest in 2009, and they've made remarkable progress.
This was the apartment of Nicholas Esterházy (1714-1790), a Hungarian prince. His building of palaces, extravagant clothing and taste for opera and other grand musical productions led to his being given the title "the Magnificent." He is remembered as the principal employer of the composer Joseph Haydn. He took the title of prince upon his brother's death. (from Wikipedia)
