Art Nouveau Budapest

( Half day tour )

 

If you have a passion for Art Nouveau, Budapest is definately the right place to visit. At the end of the 19th century, Budapest grew from a small town to a great metropolis  in the truest sense of the word.  The number of buildings doubled. Budapest's architecture provides vibrant record of Art Nouveau and there are many places where exotic facades brighten up. We will start at a stunning apartment, where three floors are filled with Art Nouveau fittings and furnitures. It is one of the best collections of everyday items. Then we may sit in its cozy, Art Nouveau café and sip a cup of coffee or tea. During the tour we are going to see villas and public buildings like Gresham Palace, Post Office Saving Bank, Institute of Geography, Museum of Applied Arts. I will tell about „the Hungarian Gaudi”, who created the „National Style”. Last I will take you to Gellért Bath. The world famous spa is decorated with a wealth of original Art Nouveau furnishings, artistic mosaics, stained glass windows and sculptures. You may will feel like staying there for the rest of the day.
