It is a most peculiar structure, a real curiosity of the city. The special architectural feature of the castle is that it is made of concrete. The 20th century knights’ castle was constructed by architect and sculptor Jenő Bory over a period of 36 years...More

Amazing what this guy has done - building a castle from concrete by himself !! Definitely worth a detour.

If you are in Székesfehérvár, I recommend you to see this castle as well. It is a beautiful castle but quite small, so we did not spend a lot of time there. The ticket price is not expensive, although I did not feel that they...More

It takes some time but not so much. Picturesque new age era castle is a symobol of modern architecture and human endeavour to leave something for the future. If you want to fill up your time in the city this is the choice.

One of the few attractions in this town. Totally worth visiting. Kind of disappointing theres no bigger story behind the castle.

A must visit for tourist in Szekesfehervar, but you can't really access it with public transport, so you have to use a car.

This was not my first time here, but never reviewed it before. The small details are what I find amazing. Bits of tile, shells, etc. Great place to take photographs.
