Vigadó Concert Hall

The history of the Pesti Vigadó (literally, 'place for merriment') begins in the early 19th century. Designed and built by Mihály Pollack, the 'Redoute' counted among the most prominent cultural and entertainment venues of the capital. Destroyed in the 1848/49 Hungarian war of independence, the building was reconstructed according to the plans of Frigyes Feszl. Completed in 1865 the edifice, whose style intermingles the unique Oriental with the romantic, is to this day one of Buda's principal architectural monuments.
