Body & Soul

September 15, 2023 @ 10:00 am 2:00 pm

In Hungary, Ödön Lechner, a renowned Art Nouveau architect, designed a stunning church located in the 10th district. During the late 19th and early 20th century, Hungarian architecture flourished and Lechner aimed to create a distinctive and culturally significant style. His designs incorporated folk patterns and his architectural talent is evident in the unique and beautiful buildings he created, which are representative of the Art Nouveau era in Hungary. One of his most notable works is the Szent Laszlo Church, constructed between 1891 and 1897 in Köbanya. During our visit, we’ll also take a walk to the Szent László Gimnázium, a high school designed by Lechner during a later period (1914-15). After admiring these magnificent buildings, we’ll head to Budapest’s Chinatown for lunch, which is a short tram ride away. Please note that we’ll be using public transportation, so make sure to have a valid pass or tickets.
