Fun Facts about Pesti Vigado building

Pesti Vigado Budapest
Pesti Vigado Budapest

One of the highlights of Budapest river cruises is Pesti Vigado Concert Hall: the building is a gem, and a landmark of the Pest side of Budapest city’s Danube riverbank.
Buda and Pest used to be two independent towns separated by the river Danube. Once permanent stone bridges were built in the 19th century, the 2 towns got married. Where else than in Pesti Vigado building? Budapest united into a single city in 1873 comprising of Buda, Pest and old Buda (Obuda).
The predecessor of Pesti Vigado, the Redoute, opened its doors in 1833 as an architectural masterpiece of Classicism. Being the only concert hall in the capital at the time, artists like Strauss, Erkel and Liszt played there.
The building has recently been restored, and has marvellous halls, wall paintings and mosaics, great acoustics, an elegant restaurant, and many exhibitions throughout the year.
