I think this is a building belonging to the national Academy, it has beautiful interiors, I attended an evening live screening of an opera from ROH Covent Garden which just happened to be scheduled during my stay in Budapest

Dear R. H., Thank you for your visit and kind words. You are right the building belongs to the Hungarian Academy of Arts.

The building is very interesting on the outside, with statues and huge curved windows. It really stands out and is pretty. It sits right behind the Vigado square with it's fountain in view of the concert hall.

We bought a ticket which enabled us to visit the 3 art exhibitions running at the moment, and wander round the beautiful building, including the terrace which had lovely views across to Buda. The building has amazing interiors, and the exhibitions were varied and interesting.

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
