Budapest's Monumental Vajdahunyad Castle

Vajdahunyad Castle, or Vajdahunyad-vár, is a castle in City Park that was built between 1896 and 1908, designed by Ignác Alpár. It is a copy in part of a castle in Transylvania, Romania, that is also called Vajdahunyad, though it is also a display of different architectural styles: Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque. Housed in this large complex is the Agriculture Museum http://www.pbase.com/helenpb/agriculture_museum

Originally it was made from cardboard and wood for the millennial exhibition in 1896 but it became so popular that it was rebuilt from stone and brick.
