Székesfehérvár, Bory Castle
Jenő Bory, designer and owner of the castle, did not so much consider his work a castle but rather as a living, habitable sculpture, one of whose ideological centres is the Chapel of Marital Love. The architect purchased the land for the castle in 1912, and from then until his death in 1959, he continuously beautified his edifice, which also experienced the devastation of World War II. The residential tower symbolizes Jenő Bory's family, wife and three children, but there is also a 100-column courtyard with statues of the greats of Hungarian history, a rose garden, and a gallery guarding the treasures of Hungarian art. You can wander around in the romantic castle for hours, with a different surprise meeting you every step of the way.
