Hungary's Nagytétényi Castle Museum

This is actually the Száraz-Rudnyánszky Castle, built in the 18th century and set in a park just outside of Budapest. The biggest attraction seems to be a first-floor furniture exhibit of items from around Europe that were not original to the castle (the furniture is beautiful but the rooms rather ordinary). On the second floor, one can get more of a sense of how the castle used to look in between the furniture displays, although in truth there wasn't a lot to photograph. I found myself fascinated by the massive coal-burning stoves in every room, each one different from the last. I hope they give a sense of the grandeur of this castle.
