The Bory Castle



The Bory Castle of Székesfehérvár is Castle/Building Compelx which was built by the Artist/Architect/Sculptor Jenő Bory.
The buiding's construction was started in 1923 and continuously expanded and improved till the death of Jenő Bory in 1959. The Artist dedicated the building to the arts and Marital Love and it used both as a family home, an art studio for his wife, 
Ilona Komócsin and an art in itself. The Castle was built by his own hands only seldom used other helping hands in the construction based not on construction or architectural plans but rather in his own imagination the Castle building complex formed under his own hands, the various halls, towers, rooms, squares and walls created a unique looking but magnificent and beautiful building.
Jenő Bory bought the estate in 1912 when at that time was located at the outskirts of the city and only had fruit trees, Grape, a Wine Cellar and Press House (The area around Székesfehérvár is well known for it's wine and grapes) He remodelled the Press House into a Home in that year and not long after that expanded it with an art studio, but the construction of the actual castle only started after World War I. He officially opened the castle in 1934 but additions, improvements and remodellings were still done long after this. Though officially the construction of the castle ended in 1959 with his death, but the post-construction and finalising the buildings only done by 1964, meaning the castle's construction ended after 41 years! There was a saying that Jenő Bory worked on it for 40 summers!
Nowadays it is serves as a Museum for the Bory Family's heritage: Paintings, Sculptures and Memories.
