The Palace of Fertôd has always been known as the Hungarian Versailles.
As eras are counted, the golden age of Fertôd lasted but an instant - from the late 1760s to 1790. These were the years when Miklós Eszterházy enjoyed the title, wealth and power of Prince of the Holy Roman Empire. He converted an undistinguished hunting headquarters into an imperial palace, which he proceded to fill with art, culture and gaiety.
