Drechsler Palace Budapest: Built in 1893-1896, the facade is a superb example of Neo-Renaissance style
One of Budapest’s important monuments is the Drechsler Palace, directly opposite from the State Opera House. It was designed by star architects Ödön Lechner and Gyula Pártos, and built in just 3 years, between 1883 and 1886. The premises of the former Dreschler Café used to give home to the Institute of Ballet.
Currently closed, with no decision as to the building’s new function.
