Palace of Arts

Budapest, Hungary

The Palace of the Arts - with its Béla Bartók National Concert Hall and Festival Theatre Hall - is located on Komor Marcell sétány 1. in 1095 Budapest.

When the Palace of Arts, Budapest and Hungary's long-awaited new cultural hub, opened in 2005, it was built to represent more than a hundred years of Hungarian cultural history. As 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.

The creators of this ambitious project, the Trigránit Development Corporation, prime contractor Arcadom Construction and the Zoboki, Demeter and Partners Architectural Office, were driven by the desire to create a new European cultural citadel as part of the new Millennium City Centre complex along the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Danube waterfront. The result is a facility whose construction quality, appearance, functionality and 21st century technological infrastructure makes it ideally suited to productions of the highest standard.
