The interiors of Buda Castle, the former palace of the Hungarian kings in Budapest, Hungary, were all destroyed during World War II and the post-war reconstruction (except the Palatinal Crypt). There is very little data about the interiors from the medieval and Baroque era. However, the turn-of-the-century palace was meticulously recorded with detailed descriptions, photographic documentation and grounds plans. Architect Alajos Hauszmann himself said about the royal apartments, "I created a 200 m long series of rooms, longer than any similar royal apartments in continental Europe except Versailles."
Famous quotes containing the word castle:
“Let me be at the place of the castle.
Let the castle be within me.”
