City Park Millennium House Walk

December 17 @ 11:00 am 1:00 pm

Originally constructed for the 1885 National General Exhibition to showcase fine art, the Olof Palme House was highly praised for its colourfulness, thanks to its unique Zsolnay porcelain decorations on the façade. The restoration of the building is now complete to include the original extensions to the building which were demolished during the many years of neglect. The roof has been revamped with huge glass surfaces and the vibrant Zsolnay tiles have also been restored. Presently there is a temporary exhibition about the heyday of City Park, as well as a permanent display presenting Belle-Époque Budapest. It is an interactive exhibition for people to step back in time to see how it was at the turn of the century to ride a tram along Andrassy út, walk in and around city park and see how people lived during this time. There is also a short film of how the park is being restored. We are planning to visit this exhibit on Tuesday, December 17 at 11 am.
