Thanks for posting these beautiful photographs! I visited Budapest in 2009 and very much enjoyed my stay. So much to do, and the people are very friendly. Loved the architecture - wonderful Art Nouveau buildings. Please post more when you are able.

Várkert Bazár

THE VÁRKERT BAZÁR IN THE 19TH CENTURY

In the 19th century rapid development began on the Pest side of the Danube with an imposing row of palaces and a pedestrian mall, while the Buda side retained its rural 18th century appearance with single-floor buildings.

At the beginning of the 1870’s the idea of creating a representative building complex and an ornamental garden at the base of Várhegy was born. Miklós Ybl, who was a well-known and celebrated architect by that time, was charged with the task of creating the final plans. Várkert Bazár was constructed from 1875 to 1883 in neo-renaissance style based on the plans of Miklós Ybl. The building complex is one of the most beautiful creations of the Hungarian romantic style; ever since its opening in 1883 it has always been regarded as an undisputed masterpiece with its beauty and balanced proportions.

The one-time stores were later also used as studios; Alajos Stróbl, the creator of the Mátyás fountain in Buda Castle and of the statue of János Arany found in front of the National Museum worked here from 1884.

Elisabeth Bridge.

Before the war:













Blown up on 18 January 1945 by the retreating German troops.







Designed by Pál Sávoly, it was rebuilt as a cable-bridge in 1963.

Very serious. The government is throwing its financial weight behind the project. The temporary relocation of collections and archives of the museum is completed and construction work is scheduled to begin later this year.

And how serious are the plans with the reconstruction of the old castle roofs/dome and adjacent buildings? Is it more of a vision or could some of it actually happen in the near future

Great photo and with a color you can feel even more the atmosphere of pre-war grand Budapest.
Definitely my favourite capital in Europe yet.
