Exciting Cultural Life
Hungary has a rich and thrilling world of culture. From classical to contemporary, through folklore, dance and music to design, you sure will find pretty much something for everyone.
Budapest is a hive of top-class music and art. Not nicknamed the ‘Paris of the East' for nothing, it boasts broad boulevards and green parks, grand Art-Nouveau mansions, vibrantly painted churches, plenty of museums and galleries, lively cafés.
With the homeland of such outstanding composers as Béla Bartók and Zoltán Kodály, with world-class opera house and the famous, newly renowated Liszt Academy, Hungarians have a significant role in the international music life. Budapest Spring Festival is the largest cultural platform, featuring classical and pop music, drama, exhibitions and famous artists every year. The Palace of Arts is a conglomeration of cultural venues, the building has no precedent in 20th century Hungarian architecture and has no peers in the whole of Central Europe.
