Buda, Budapest: 33 reviews and 43 photos
You can find this building right next to the Alexander Palace. It was built in the XVIII. century. In the period of Joseph the 2nd (1780-1792) the Carmelites had to leave the chloster. The beautiful baroque altar was brought to Sárospatak(you can still see it there in the main church of this town), and the whole complex was transformed to a fancy theatre. In 1942 the balcony fell down. After this the building were used as a weapon storage. In the wwII. also this building was havily damaged. This palace hosts today the National Dance Theatre, and the Foundation for the mantenaince of the Castle district, and you can find here a very good restaurant as well.
But soon this will change: within a couple of years also the internals of this building will be recontructed for representative purposes. In fact it will be part of the office of President of the Republic.
Directions: Szent György tér. Close to the Royal palace
