Bory Castle in Székesfehérvár Hungary is the intellectual work of one man with loads of imagination - Fairytale Castle in Hungary. The building features a range of architectural styles–from Scottish to Romanesque to Gothic–all eccentrically combined. You can freely climb the towers and walk among the garden’s sculptures, which were all created by Bory. Inside are several galleries featuring Bory’s paintings, many of which are of his wife, for whom the castle was built.
