Art in Budapest

Many of the buildings in Budapest are beautiful with art nouveau designs although many look quite run down. There are statues throughout the city and these magnificent gates at the royal palace. Hungarians produce a type of ceramic with very lace like edges – like a paper doily in porcelain, which they use to make ornate bowls and plates. The circular lace pictured here came from the Villeroy and Bosch china shop in Andrassy Street.
