    I think this was this was the best place I visited this summer. The entrance ticket was surprisingly cheap compared to other places I visited this year. The castle is not a big one, but is wonderful. It comes through each and every stone, that it was made with passion and love, as the story says. The castle was built by Jenő Bory and he dedicated it to his wife. He was not just an architect but a sculptor as well, while his wife painted. The castle is also an exhibition from their arts, paintings and sculptures. The place is full of things to see and make a photo of: stones and coins built into the walls, rose windows and spiral stairwells each painted with different motives. You can climb up the narrow staircases to the towers and look around from above (I'd highlight, the narrow staircases and very high towers). You can have a nice view of the city and the castle as well.
    I was mostly amazed by the gardens in and out of the castle. Lavender bushes, flowers, loads of green and the highly maintained lawn give such a lovely atmosphere you imagine you're in a fairytale.
    I think I'll come back again, this place is just wonderful!

    We didn’t expect the main square to be so nice, so it was a real surprise for us. Some events were going on and there, there were a lot of visitors and performers. We could watch the performances or also take something for eat or drink.

    This is such lovely statue. You bump into this smiling woman probably on the way to the market to sell milk. I imagine people were like this at the time. Surely worth a photo and a smile. :)

    This is a very-very long street to walk through, so choose comfortable shoes before you go. It looked liked it was renovated not long ago. Nice statues, fountains, museums on the way with many cafes and bars, some restaurants and shops. We went on a Friday afternoon and I was surprised, that most of the shops were closed. However, you'd find here everything you need and it's in the center of the city. It's amazing how many architectural styles come up when you walk: from baroque to eclectic through classicist. It's worth the walk. :)

    This square is full of history in the downtown of Szekesfehervar.
    This is the oldest site of the city.
    If you are interested in history then it is a must for you!

    It is such a beautiful chapel. You can just imagine all the human stories that took place there over the centuries.

    OK...Trip Advisor keeps prompting me to write more 'attractions' reviews.
    So the Viragora Flower Clock came up as an option so here goes....

    It's a clock. It's a fair size. And it's made of flowers.

    What else is there to say?

    Like in my childhood tales - medieval atmosphere and feelings in the hearth of Székesfehérvár. Great masterpiece of a great Expert!

    The "Fekete Sas" Chemist's shop and museum is a very very small place that displays a Pharmacy from the beginning of the 20th Century. Most of the furniture and vials are original and are over 100 years old.
    In another room there is a small museum dedicated to the Hungarian Prisoners of War who fell into the hands of the Italians during the First World War.
    What makes the museum REALLY interesting is the owner who is capable and ready to tell you a HUGE amount of information about the history of Hungary, of Szekesfehervar and of the wars that Hungary went through throughout its History. Speaking with him is definitely worth your time, especially if you speak Hungarian.

    Walking on Fő utca just enjoying all there is to see, we came to this church and walked in. It is just amazingly beautiful. It is so elegant. The carvings we owe to Baumgartner Bernat, a Hungarian Wood Carver and Jesuit. This church was a Jesuit church.
    It is well worth visiting. The energy is fantastic.
