The Palace of Arts Budapest is the leading concert hall of the Hungarian capital city and it is an architecturally beautiful building on the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Danube waterfront in Budapest.
With its attractive and contemporary design both in- and outside and offering one of the very best places globally for a high variety of concerts and other cultural events with its incredibly good acoustics, world famous artists (like Paavo Jarvi, Diana Krall, Elvis Costello) love to perform here.
We must not forget about the Budapest Festival Orchestra, one of the top 10 orchestras in the world, either, which regularly performs here.
Opening its doors in 2015, the Palace of Arts (or MUPA as the Hungarians call it) is home for classical, contemporary, popular and world music, it also gives place to opera and jazz as well as to dance performances and film events.
The construction and design of Mupa won the architectural FIABCI Prix d’Excellence in 2006, in the category for buildings offering public services. What is more, the Palace of Arts rose the attention of film
producers’, as it was filmed in a recent movie, as the setting for a NASA headquarters.
Having three parts: the Bela Bartok National Concert Hall, which is probably the most important one and has one of the largest concert hall organs in the world, the Ludvig Museum, presenting contemporary art and finally the Festival Theatre, Mupa is a cultural hub of Budapest.
Delicious meals, good wine, friendly service in a stylish restaurant after a magnificent concert experience is a must for every visitor.
Mupa Budapest is open daily from 10 am to 6 pm. Public areas can be accessed freely during opening hours.
