Vajdahunyad Castle is just amazing. Situated in Varosliget park at the back of Heroes' Square. It is on an island but no water in the moat at present. Simply magical castle. Lovely architecture. Christmas market is there at the moment too.

Went to a walk in that park and those buildings added so much magic to it. I didn't went inside them, but if you enjoy great architecture and it's details then you are in for a treat.

We loved the character of these old buildings. The castle with it's turrets and towers to the quaint chapel. When we visited the Christmas Market had just begun.

The castle is really easy to get to by public transport. Find your way to Széchenyi fürdő on the metro line 1. It's situated in a park. Lots of buildings to explore. The castle is the main attraction but there are also the spa, church...More

It must be possible... Gates are open. No guards. No tickets. No security. The tour is all free. People walking around freely. And wedding photos must be free/possible too (I assume, I guess).
