Hungary > Fertod
This baroque palace, the largest and most beautiful in the country, is known
as the "Hungarian Versailles" because of its splendid Baroque-Rococo
French garden. Duke Esterhary, who built it, showed off his new home to the
Viennese aristocracy in 1770. Joseph Haydn, the world-famous composer lived
and composed here for over ten years, conducting the orchestra in the stately
home. Today the Fertod mansion is open to the public as a museum.
