Hungarian self-built castle.
Photographed by Arpad Horvath, June 2006
One of two self-built castles in Hungary (the other is the much more ramshackle Tarodi Var), Bory Castle was the work of Hungarian sculptor and architect Jeno Bory. Bory built the castle between 1923 and 1959 with the help of several of his students.
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.
