Whether you are a resident of Budapest or just visiting, you might be interested to know that the city has undergone a major renovation. A new state hall, a new place of worship, and even a new quay are just some changes happening to the city’s downtown. These changes will make Budapest even more attractive to visitors and residents alike.

Stage engineering and electrical room

Located in the heart of Budapest’s industrial quarter, the Eiffel Art Studios is home to a 450 square meter ballet rehearsal hall. The largest of its kind in home renovation Budapest is arguably the epicenter of the city’s arts and crafts movement. For many a slew of creatives, it is where they first honed their artistic chops. As a result, it is one of the city’s most vibrant artistic communities. Its laudable alumni include the Hungarian Ballet, the Budapest Philharmonic, the Budapest Opera, and the Budapest Ballet Company. It is also home to many small workshops and aspiring choreographers who are eager to hone their craft.

The Eiffel Art Studios also houses one of Budapest’s most prominent museums, the Budapest Museum of Fine Arts. A tour of the collection is well worth the price of admission.

Jozsef Antall Quay

During his three-and-a-half-year term as Prime Minister of Hungary, Jozsef Antall made Hungary a favorite of foreign investors. He facilitated the development of a market economy and created a legal system to attract foreign investment.

His term also saw increased crime and unemployment, which jumped from nonexistence to 14 percent. The living standards of one-third of the population declined to the subsistence level. He also faced anti-Semitism in his right-wing MDF party.

After the collapse of the Communist regime in 1990, Hungary reverted to a capitalist system. The MDF, which was led by Antall, was instrumental in the transition.

Antall was the first freely elected prime minister of Hungary. His goal was to establish a democratic state. In order to achieve his goal, Antall had to put emphasis on political stability, the restoration of historical continuity, and the development of relations with the Hungarians living abroad.

Blaha Lujza Square

During the renovation, Blaha Lujza Square will be transformed into a liveable community space. New pedestrian areas and public utilities will be installed in the area. The square will receive a boost in greenery.

As part of the renovation, 65 new trees will be planted alongside a thousand square meters of grass. In the square, the mushroom fountain will be renovated to resemble its former glory. A panorama rooftop bar will also be installed.

A new cultural venue is also expected to open in the square. Swivel chairs will be positioned there, emulating the former National Theater.

Blaha Lujza ter is a junction in the heart of Budapest. It is one of the most important crossroads in the city. It is where Grand Boulevard crosses Rakoczi ut. It is also a major transport hub. It has a subway station, tram, and bus stations.

State hall

During the recent renovation of Budapest’s central town hall, archeological excavations revealed that the slope of the courtyard had been ripped out to make room for the new structure. The result is a remodeled building that blends into the surrounding streetscape and is now the city’s cultural center. The facade is set to receive decorative lighting soon.

Unlike Italy’s national monument, Hungary’s monument is more restrained in its bombast. The Hungarian Parliament, whose design is similar to that of Westminster Palace, is a huge building that includes parts that are open to the public. It also features a museum with a permanent exhibit of Hungary’s history.

The CET Building, which means whale in Hungarian, is one of the city’s few buildings that offers direct access to the Danube. It is also one of the few high-tech structures to offer sweeping views of the river. It features two restored warehouses, a riverfront bar, and a cultural and commercial center.

New place of worship

Earlier this year, Budapest’s oldest synagogue was rededicated after more than fifty years of neglect. This grand reopening was made possible by a state grant of $11.2 million.

The synagogue, which is located in Budapest’s 7th district, was built in Moorish style. Before World War II, the community represented five percent of Budapest’s population. The synagogue has been renovated, and will now serve as a Jewish cultural center.

The synagogue’s history predates the Magyar conquest of the Carpathian Basin in 895 by 600 years. Viennese architect Otto Wagner designed the building.

In the early 20th century, the community represented about 23% of Budapest’s population. After the Holocaust, the city’s 100,000 Jews became largely uninterested in their religion.

In 2006, the synagogue was brought back into the Jewish community. But renovations have continued in fits and starts. In the past, the synagogue’s main chamber has been open to the public as a museum.
