István Széchenyi
István Széchenyi
Are you interested in a man who was loved by the most beautiful women of the century, who was not a scholar yet he founded an academy, who wrote the greatest Hungarian bestseller even though Hungarian wasn’t his native language, whose castle boasted the first English toilet in the Carpathian Basin, who established the new Hungarian capital by building Chain Bridge and who, despite being ill, fought successfully for the freedom of his oppressed nation? If so, come and see The Worlds of Széchenyi exhibition at the Hungarian National Museum.
