"See the group of castle buildings behind the pillars of Heroes' Square? This group of "old castles" was completed in 1896 along with Heroes' Square and is now the Hungarian Agricultural Museum. Rome, Gothic, Baroque, Neoclassical...The characteristics of different architectural history periods are so wonderfully and harmoniously mixed together, as if the fantasy dream of a talented architect has crossed into reality, so that it is also a hero Part of the square is on the World Cultural Heritage List. If you just leave after admiring the architecture of the Hungarian Agricultural Museum from outside, you will be left with great regret. During the Austro-Hungarian dual empire, Hungary was the main agricultural area of the empire. Therefore, the Hungarian museum is also one of the oldest and largest agricultural museums in Europe. Its tradition can be traced back to the 1896 agricultural exhibition. The dozens of exhibition halls here are filled with thousands of farming tools and specimens. The history and current situation of Hungarian agriculture since the new era are introduced in detail, including fishing, forestry, animal husbandry, and...hunting! Yes, the most magnificent exhibition hall in this museum is the hunting hall. Hundreds of deer and bear heads hung on the wall to give you a bird's eye view, full of pressure and courage."

" Although it was getting late, we continued to take the subway north to visit the remnants of the Berlin Wall (Berliner Mauer Dokumentationszentrum). Berlin was completely added by our trip. If you don't see the Berlin Wall when you come to Eastern Europe, it's like you haven't been to the forefront in a war. It was the beginning of Hua Deng, and the archives center had already closed. We fumbled for a long time and finally found a ruined wall lit with dim lights. This is one of the few and best protected Berlin Walls in Berlin—in fact, they are two side by side , And there is a tall observation post in the middle. You can go up and visit for free when the archive center is open during the day. Back then, it was such a concrete block that forcibly divided Berlin into two halves, becoming a symbol of the Cold War between the East and the West. During the drastic changes in Eastern Europe in 1989, the Berlin Wall was overthrown almost overnight. After they woke up, they realized that these cement blocks would be regarded as cultural relics in the future, but it was too late."

Reasons to Recommend: The museum was established in 1986 as a former music school. Now it is open as a museum. The musical instruments, furniture, rooms, books and other valuable souvenirs used by Liszt are displayed inside. There are many exhibition items, and they are all precious and worth seeing.
