Once known as the Palace of Arts, Müpa Budapest is one of the city’s most modern cultural institutions. Visitors can experience classical, contemporary, popular and world music, along with contemporary circus, dance, literature and film. However, it’s not just the range of events that attract visitors – the building itself is well worth seeing. Designed by architects Zoboki-Demeter & Associates, it represents more than a century of Hungarian cultural history and houses several cultural venues. The massive limestone building with its gigantic windows on the Danube waterfront is an impressive sight. Inside, warm wood decorates the huge concert halls.
