This series presents the enchanting buildings, spaces and scenery of the Hungarian capital. The Palace and Castle District of Buda have been one of Budapest’s World Heritage sites since 1987. Construction of the Gothic-style palace started in the mid-1300s and lasted until the 1400s. During the Turkish occupation, the palace began to deteriorate and it was also seriously damaged during the 1686 siege and liberation. In the course of renovation, Baroque elements were added, but its Gothic and Renaissance parts also remained. In 1715, a smaller Baroque-style castle was added to the palace. At the end of the 19th century, a rear wing was also built, with the involvement of Miklós Ybl and Alajos Hauszmann. The facade of the Maria Theresa wing facing the Danube was enlarged and, a Baroque and neo-Baroque dome was added to the palace. The Krisztinaváros wing decorated with Secessionist elements has housed the National Széchényi Library since 1985. The palace is also home to the Hungarian National Gallery and the Budapest History Museum.
