With its thematized, vast spaces – Grill Terrace, House Party Room, The Saloon – Doboz is truly a sight to behold. You can enjoy pieces of art courtesy of contemporary Hungarian artists, although the main attraction of Doboz is undoubtedly the King Kong sculpture hanging from a tree in the middle of the garden.
