In Hungary one can find a great variety of historical buildings ranging from
medieval castles to late baroque palaces.
Hungarian medieval castles were built to defend the territory against the
Ottoman invasion. The best preserved examples of a medieval castle are the Visegrad
Castle along the Danube, the Hollóko Castle or Sümeg Castle.
Probably Hungary’s most well known castle, the Buda Castle, located on the hills of Buda is also a fine example
of a castle that played a central role in the country’s history.
Hungary doesn’t lack magnificent palaces either; there are many palaces like
the Festetics Palace, Gödöllő Palace or the Esterhazy Palace.
