Budapest: The Neoclassical and Baroque Nest
For those interested in architecture, Budapest is a treasure trove of historic buildings and inspiring design. Though most of the city was built, or at least revamped and renovated, during the Golden Age of the 19th Century, it is well known for its mix of architectural styles from a range of distinct periods: Roman, Romantic and Modern. Main attractions include the Great Synagogue, the largest Jewish house of worship outside of New York, featuring Romantic and Moorish elements; the Veli Beji Roman Baths, considered to be one of the most beautiful Ottoman-era Baths in Europe; the modern Palace of Arts Concert Hall, opened as recently as 2005 and both the Hungarian National Museum and the Lutheran Church of Budavar: both exquisite examples of the influence of the Neoclassical period.
