Main Customs House, Corvinus University: Neo-Renaissance palace with 22 allegorical statues

The former Main Customs House, today Corvinus University, is located on the Danube Bank next to the Liberty Bridge.

The building was built between 1870 and 1874 to serve the customs clearance and administrative tasks of goods arriving in Budapest. The designer was Miklós Ybl.

The façade is decorated with 22 sculptures depicting figures from Greco-Roman mythology and Hungarian occupations.

During World War II, the building was damaged. In 1950, Corvinus University moved within its walls.
