“The heaviest building on the planet. Briefly held the record for the largest chandelier, but that is nowadays a record conceded to India. Briefly held the record for the largest carpet in the world. An impressive example of communist megalomania. ”

Monument / Landmark
“The northernmost medieval minaret in Europe (i.e., the northernmost one except those built by immigrant communities in the last decades) and the tallest in Hungary (the other two are in Pécs and Érd) the minaret is a 42 meter high symbol of the Turkish occupation. It is 97 steps to the top, but be warned, the climb up is in an incredibly enclosed space on uneven and slippery steps and there is little room to move around up top so those who are afraid of heights or tight places should just enjoy it from the outside. Open for visitors from April to November.”
