Pre & Post Cruise
3 days in Budapest
|Transportation:||Walking & public transport|
See your guide: Kata B.Art Nouveau makes me smile, whenever I come by a hidden piece of this beautiful architecture in Budapest. Colorful decoration, frisky lines, striking solutions.
Curious, and heart-warming that such a fresh, new style could bloom in Budapest at the turn of the last century, if only for a few years. Why was Art Nouveau so loved, and so hated in this city?
Why is the roof of a famous landmark building so richly decorated, when people passing by would not see it anyway?
Why are so many Art Nouveau houses in Budapest adorned with colorful ceramic tiles? And what is so special about this decoration?
In what way is the Habsburg empire involved? And how is the story connected to communism?
Shall we find the anwsers together?
A walk through central Budapest makes history come alive. Stories of dreams and struggle, inventions and political decisions. Stories of people living in a time when a provincial town suddenly turns into a metropolis.
