The construction work on the building complex standing on an island in City Park Lake was completed in 1896 – a significant year for the Hungarian nation, since this was the year when Hungary celebrated the 1000th anniversary of the conquest. Along with many other landmarks in Budapest, Vajdahunyad Castle was also constructed for the Jubilee celebration of the thousand years of the Hungarian State. The building complex is considered a particularly interesting attraction, since it combines elements from the Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque styles at the same time. The components of the monumental castle building were modelled after famous buildings erected in the area of historical Hungary, so we can discover traces of Romanesque and Gothic churches, Renaissance palaces and Baroque castles in certain sections of the castle. One of the most characteristic details of Vajdahunyad Castle is the medieval tower that stands by the entrance to the building complex. The edifice was originally referred to as the Historical Building Complex and was only later named Vajdahunyad Castle after Ignác Alpár modelled the most dominant part, the main facade, after the Hunyadis’ medieval Vajdahunyad Castle in Transylvania.
