Art Nouveau in Budapest

This is a true off the beaten track experience! Join us into the world of this joyous ornamental style that stood against academic historicism and brought a fresh new vibe in most fields of art. Hungary provides countless examples, and so does Budapest as the cradle of Art Nouveau. Local artists wanted to stand out by bringing folk traditions, legends, songs to life. Colorful rooftops, fairytale facades, exciting history awaits you on this unique tour. Deepen your Budapest experience with us!

We leave the downtown area of Pest behind to discover the neighborhood of the City Park. This is where we’ll find the most outstanding Art Nouveau houses of our capital.  Walking along and beyond Andrássy Avenue - the Champs Élysées of Budapest -, we’ll get the idea why in the 1800s the nation was craving to show itself  to the world again. This series of attempts represented a new beginning after the agelong Habsburg suppression.  Within just 20 years Hungary gained worldwide recognition in applied arts and architecture. Many schools, museums, churches and private mansions grew out of the ground as advocates of a new era. Let us reveals the past and present of these masterpieces and guide you through a quarter that will make us travel back into a glorious time.
