THE ESZTERHAZY PALACE - EISENSTADT - AUSTRIA

Photo a little closer to my original homeland.
NB. this place used to belong to Hungary before the fateful events of 1918 upon which Treaty of Trianon handed it over to Austria.
Original name of the town was Kisma'rton and the Eszterhazy-s were Hungarian princes. They hired a fellow named Franz Joseph Haydn to compose music for them and a young kid of 10, called Franz Liszt with his father used to play there a lot.
It's a beautiful place in excellent condition, worth seeing.

    The old Österreich-Ungarn monarchy left so many fine traces in architecture and culture - so many places not to be missed. I am sure you know a thing or two to tell about. Fine pictures, dear Janos.
    all the best, Jost
