Very nice building with gallery and other cultural venues inside. I came for the Felt exhibition, which was great. The surroundings are also nice.

This is a lovely concert hall, located in the tranquil and beautiful Vigado square. The hall has undergone some extensive renovations in recent years and is now looking better than ever. Make sure to book tickets in advance.

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

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
