Hungary: Gödöll and the magnificent royal palace

Gödöll is home to a magnificent royal palace that once served as the summer residence of Austrian Emperor, Franz Josef. Built in the mid 18th century, it’s Hungary’s largest baroque manor house and was a favorite spot of the much-loved Empress Elizabeth (better known as Sissi). It served as a barracks for Soviet and Hungarian troops under communism until it underwent a renovation in the mid 1980s
