This building wasn`t originally a Casino. The construction dates back to the 1880`s years. In that period it had two parts. The first hided the engine room wich was responsable for the water-provision of the Royal Palace, while the other part hosted a caffe wich was one of the most famous in the city.
It`s only after 1990 that it has become a very popular Casino when foreigner invetors bought it. I must admit that I have never been inside, but if you like this kind of entertainment, in Budapest this is one of the most ideal places.
