Vajdahunyad Castle was built between I896 and 1908 its various parts illustrate the different styles of Hungarian architecture. It was designed by Ignác Alpár, and derived its name from the wing facing the lake, which is an imitation of the Castle of Vajdahunyad in Transylvania. The original castle was built in the fifteenth century and belonged to János Hunyadi, the hero of the Turkish wars. A Gothic gate leads to the courtyard. To the left are Romanesque buildings; the chapel uses motifs of the famous thirteenth-century Benedictine abbey at Ják in Western Hungary, the most beautiful surviving relic of Romanesque architecture in the country. The chapel is flanked by a pseudo-medieval ambulatory with a corner turret. The buildings facing the lake are imitations of a castle-wall and a feudal castle. On the opposite side, the outstanding structure among the Gothic group of buildings is the copy of the castle-tower of Segesvár in Transylvania (now Sighisoara, Rumania). Inside there is a Gothic courtyard with some early Renaissance elements. The largest façade facing the courtyard was built in Baroque style. The Agricultural Museum (largest in Europe) is also housed in Vajdahunyad Castle.
