The Pesti Vigado captured my eye the first time I visited Budapest, but I never went inside. This trip I decided to explore the interior which was magnificent. One of the halls featured an exhibit of graphic artist Líviusz Gyulia and another hall showcased work...More
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
The concert hall has a grand entrance with red carpets going up the stairs leading to a large painting on top of the stairs. It creates quite a dramatic picture. In comparison, the concert hall itself is more austere looking. The admission price without a...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!
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
and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
