Várkert Bazár

Várkert Bazaar is a newly restored neo-Renaissance building complex on the side of the hill that goes from the Buda riverfront up to the Royal Palace. It was built between 1875 and 1883 according to the plans of one of Hungary’s great architects Miklós Ybl. It has a magnificent flower garden with fountains, grottoes, and guard houses. The former Youth Park used to operate on the site between 1961 and 1984, but after this period, the area became neglected and was later marked for demolition.  In fact, until 2014, Várkert Bazaar was considered one of the most endangered monuments of the world. Now, after recent renovations, this series of promenades houses a new cultural space with exhibition areas, a Neo-Renaissance flower garden, a park, and catering facilities. In addition, an escalator helps to connect it to the Royal Palace grounds.
