An awesome building, it has a beautiful eclectic style.
Beautiful building, though currently closed for renovation.
Permanently closed, extensive building remodeling and new construction.
For me, one of the most beautiful buildings of Budapest! It is now abandoned and going to be restored into a hotel, but if you are lucky you can find the doors open and check the amazing retro interior inside the passage. You feel like you are in a movie and I hope it will be a nice restoration.
Think this place might AKA the Parizsi Udvar... been used as a film location for a few things, recently Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.
