What you'll do
We begin our tour with an introduction to the Art Nouveau style and how it came around not just in Hungary, but also internationally. The main goal is to familiarize you with the concept. Therefore, what could be a better example here than the Four Seasons Hotel (former Gresham Palace)? Our next leg is the Hungarian House of Secession, in its beautiful café we will have a chance for a small break and a friendly chat in front of a drink. The tour continues with one of the very first Art Nouveau buildings of Budapest - the Walkó House. Here, I will also introduce you a reference to the story of Paradise. To be honest, the next stop is my favourite one - the Hungarian State Treasury (former Royal Postal Savings Bank). I adore this building with its colorful rooftop. Here I will share with you stories about the designer - the “Hungarian Gaudí". To make the tour even more interesting, I will also show you the Ráth György Villa, which is the most gorgeous Art Nouveau museum of Budapest. Here we have a look to Viennese, French, British and, most importantly, Hungarian Art Nouveau style. Finally, the coronation of our tour is the Kőrössy Villa; I think here you will definitely notice the love and the passion that was put in its creation by the architect Mr. Albert Kőrössy.
Hello everyone! My name is Szabi, a native Hungarian and a full-time licensed tour guide in Budapest for several years now. In my Art Nouveau tour of Budapest I would like to introduce you to this outstandingly exceptional design in our capital city. In many cases, Art Nouveau buildings are hidden treasures of Budapest, but if you follow my lead throughout this journey I can assure that you will get an unexpected overview of the city. Memories have always been important to me. Therefore, I believe they are for everyone; by the end of our tour, I think you will have a cherishable and unforgettable experience in a long time :)
