Take a tour of Vajdahunyad Castle in Hungary – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats. It's difficult to believe that this castle was originally a cardboard and wood structure. Though Hungary's Vajdahunyad Castle looks medieval, it's actually only a little over one hundred years old. Built for an exhibit, the response was so enthusiastic that a permanent version was constructed. The castle is an intriguing blend of Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque architectural styles. Across from the castle is the statue "Anonymous" of an unidentified twelfth-century Hungarian chronicler. Vajdahunyad Castle, now one hundred and two years old, is the location of Budapest's Agricultural Museum.
