We were attracted by the appearance of the building and had no idea how beautiful it is inside until we entered. It is like a palace, although it has never served as a residence. In the lobby is the beautiful Bogányi piano (Google it!), and...More

Visited as part of a ceremony in February 2018. The building is pretty spectacular inside! You have to see it! The acoustics is very good. Check out all the details of the interior. It is remarkable! A MUST TO SEE!

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
