Gozsdu Udvar (meaning “Gozsdu Courtyard” in Hungarian) was named after a Romanian lawyer, Manó Gozsdu, famous for his real-estate investments. The complex bearing his name was designed by the famous architect Győző Czigler and built in 1902, almost 30 years after Gozsdu himself had passed away. The complex consists of seven buildings and a passage formed by six interconnected courtyards, which once played a very important part in the life of Budapest's Jewish community. The first Jewish prayer houses were established here alongside different stores and shops. A lot has changed since then, but Gozsdu Udvar, a small city within the city, is blooming again. You can find a whole bunch of cafés, bars, restaurants, shops, and clubs here, like Spíler, DiVino or Blue Bird Café, and also enjoy art exhibitions, fairs, concerts, and other events all year long, so it's always worth a visit.
On Saturdays, from 2 to 8 in the afternoon, they hold a craft and vintage market, which is worth visiting, since we can fall in love with anything from posters to lamps.
