The pompous stairs with Mable columns, frescos on the ceiling and on the walls are taking us back in time to the atmosphere of the balls and one can hear the music of Liszt, Wagner, Brams, Strauss who were playing in this concert hall. The last restoration of this concert hall is very successfully processed. There are different kinds of exhibitions are been hold in Vigadó as well as concerts and music concours. There is a balcony with amazing panoramic view on the7th floor of this building and a small expo about the history of Pesti Vigado.

Pesti Vigadó ("Place for Merriment") is about 400m south of the Pest end of the Széchenyi Chain Bridge. Budapest's second largest concert hall is the home stage of the Hungarian State Folk Ensemble. The building (1859, architect Frigyes Feszl) is a mixture of Oriental and Hungarian Art Nouveau with romantic elements and pleasing adornments. It was badly damaged during World War II, restored, listed as a National Monument in 1954, and reopened to the public in 1980. Inside, a soaring lobby connects to a grand staircase leading to a large and ornate concert hall. There is a lecture and an exhibition hall on the fifth floor and a sixth-floor terrace with panoramic views over Buda and the River Danube. Pesti Vigado is open every day from 10am to 7:30pm, and is beautifully lit at night. Current performances are listed on their website.

Very beautiful historic building of more than 150 years. Here was the banquet for the coronation of Emperor Franz Joseph, and now is a concert hall. The evening it is very well lit.

The Vigadó Concert Hall is the second largest and the most beautiful Concert Hall in Budapest, which was inaugurated in 1865. It was destroyed during World War II and was not re-opened until 1980. It has been wonderfully reconstructed as a Classical Building and Concert Venue. A stunning Lobby connects to a grand, carpeted Staircase that leads up to the Concert Hall, a Lecture and an Exhibition Hall on the 5th. Floor The Gallery inside is one of Budapest’s most popular Art Exhibition Centres where many Contemporary Artists have their Work exhibited. A Terrace is located on the 6th. Floor, offering great Views over Buda and the River Danube.
