On 12th April, we visited the Royal Palace of Gödöllő because this place used to be King Franz Joseph’s and Queen Elisabeth’s favourite summer residence in Hungary. The palace is one of the most important, largest monuments of Hungarian palace architecture which was given to the royal couple as a coronation gift from the country in 1867. Through different activities our students learnt a lot about the members of the royal family, about the personnel and about everyday life in the royal court.

We found out that:

“Marie Valerie was Queen Elisabeth’s favourite child because she was the only one she was allowed to raise as she wanted.” (Juli Kiss)

“It took 3 hours for Queen Elisabeth to get her hair done, so she had to get up at 2 am on the day of the coronation.” (Laura Málnay)

“Franz Joseph really enjoyed hunting for wild boar and deer.” (Aliz Torma)
