The Palace of Arts (Művészetek Palotája) is the most important building of the Millennial Culture Centre of Budapest. It opened in 2005 and won several international architectural recognitions. The building is characterized by cutting-edge design with amazing interior features and a simple, timeless exterior. The complex is home to the 1525-seat Béla Bartók National Concert Hall, the ultra-modern Festival Theatre and the Ludwig Museum, a sanctuary to contemporary art.

The concert hall is regarded as one of the best in Europe and is booked for years to come for the biggest world stars and orchestras. The building filled the gap of a 21st century cultural institution in Budapest and has been a success story since the beginnings. If you have time, check out one of its concerts or events – since 2018, they even have a virtual tour where you can see everything from the piano lift to the attic through VR headsets.

Tip: With a valid Müpa-ticket, you can also use the 400 square-meter ice rink once for free (it only operates during winter).
