We had one of the most memorable experiences at this concert hall. We were able to get last minute seats behind the orchestra, which was an outstanding and memorable experience. The music itself was outstanding and the duration was just right. This is a hidden gem that if you are traveling to Budapest, you MUST visit if you love music.... More

One of the best concert hall in Europe. Not only the excellent accustics, but the programm what they offer. We are Platinum member and we have fantastic concert during the whole season. Not by chance a lot of visitor come by bus from Vienna, and Bratislava!

The only problem with MUPA is the location and the neighboring awful mindless building of the Hungarian National Theater. While actually this crazy building accentuates the simple clean forms of MUPA. To be on the riverfront of the Danube river should have to be a perfect place if only it would be a bit closer to the city center. The... More

Saw the ring in Los Angeles a few years back, but this Budapest performamce was incomparable The acoustics were one of the nest i eber heard, and my seat on the second level made the visuals equally formidable It is in the 9th district, accessible by the 2...

This modern glass and concrete building has three parts - an large concert-hall, a museum and a samller venue/theatre. The place is well managed and the staff are all switched-on and friendly. The place is amazingly well appointed; comfortable seats, great catering outlets on all floors and clean toilets. This is in my view the best conert venue in Europe.... More

I recently saw a performance at the Palace of Arts (MUPA). MUPA is a very architecturally striking building on the Danube that is used for the performing arts. I saw a music and dance show called Wedding Dance that was based on a poem by László Nagy. Wedding Dance formed part of a Spring Festival in Budapest, and it was... More

I had a wonderful time in Mupa. It was amazing for me. It is an enormous modern building with all necessary equipment. I loved it. The performance was fantastic too. It was a folklore evening which was the most breathtaking experience for me recently. I can recommend for everyone.

An attractive contemporary design both the exterior and the interior, a beautiful building along the Danube and inventively illuminated during the evenings, it offers one of the very best places globally for concerts. World famous artists love to perform here because of its incredibly good acoustics. Also the home of the Budapest Festival Orchestra, one of the Top 10 orchestras... More

We saw a dance concert here on our last night in Budapest and were SO thankful that we were able to get last-minute tickets. It's worth spending some time standing outside the building before you go in just to admire the monumental architecture--even more so if you're there at night, as the lights are constantly changing, creating an unexpected light...

The MÜPA as we call a relatively new concert hall of Budapest with interesting programs and high ranked artists. If you need something more classical, than go to the Zeneakadémia (Music Academy Ferenc Liszt).
