Castle Garden Bazaar
The reconstructed historical building complex and the connecting gardens form a World Heritage Site. A modern and multifunctional 900 sqm event hall is the highlight of this complex. A neo-renaissance garden hides a special open-air stage and a contemporary pavilion restaurant.
The event-hall melds the original structural elements designed by Miklós Ybl with the state-of-the-art architectural achievements of the modern days. The antechamber of the hall is an exposed concrete box, where one side reveals the original buttress while the other side is covered by enlarged pieces from the Hartmenn-Schedel World Chronicle from 1493 that contains the first authentic depiction of Buda Castle. The two ends of the antechamber are occupied by a buffet desk illuminated by soft tone light-columns. The antechamber also has two wardrobes both painted to a turquoise blue colour, connected to the three-level subterranean garage.
