Art Nouveau Treasures of Budapest
Explore the colorful art nouveau style of Budapest: an international trend with an authentic Hungarian twist! On this tour, we show you that Art Nouveau has always been more than just a style: it was a worldview.
The latest international trends of the 19th century, combined with local traditions created a special style which is unique to Budapest. We start our tour at Liberty Square, rich in history and stately buildings. After learning about the historical context of art nouveau, we walk to our first apartment building. We explore the importance of animal and floral motifs in the rapidly developing 19th century Budapest, then walk to the Postal Savings Bank, where even the rooftop is special- the architect believed that he designed for the birds of the sky as well. We continue our tour to another apartment building, where we explore how art nouveau architects aimed to design more modern and comfortable spaces. We take a look at the old Parisiana Dance Hall, where we can observe the impact of the Austrian art nouveau and its geometrical shapes in Hungary. We finish our walk at the Kazinczy Synagogue, where orthodox Jews combined traditions with cutting-edge architectural solutions.
