The Bálna (‘Whale’) is a large-scale, glass-fronted building basking on the bank of the Danube near the Great Market Hall. Its terrace is a popular spot to tipple and chat on summer nights. By day, it’s worth popping into the New Budapest Gallery, one of the largest of its kind in town, with 760 square metres of exhibition space. It focuses primarily on contemporary art, with exhibitions on avant-garde works in the 20th century.
