Gerbeaud - Confectionery, Budapest: 9 reviews and 22 photos
You find this little square right at the back of the Gerbaud building.
It recieved it`s name from József Nádor (nádor=palatine), (originally Joseph Anton Johann (Baptist) von Österreich-Toscana) a member of the Habsburg dynasty, born in Florence and came to Pest-Buda at the age of 20, in 1796. Till his death (1847) he was Hungary`s palatine. In this period the whole inner city of Pest-Buda was transformed in classical style. In the Vth. district we can see lots of buildings built in this period, before this style gave place to the ecclectism.
On the square you can see his bronze statue allways attacked by the pigeons:), a lovely classical building wich is today a bank, the huge secessionist building of the Finance ministry and some other Art noveau buildings as well. This square will be entirely transformed within some years.
Directions: Right next to the Vörösmarty square (behind the Gerbaud building)
