Kávézó

Cafe Chrysanthème

Dég Festetics Mansion is one of the most significant neoclassical mansion complexes in Hungary. Although much has been written about the history of the mansion and its architecture, few documents regarding the dining etiquette of the Festetics family and the way they entertained the aristocracy at the white table have been preserved.
