"One building you need to see." Post Office Savings Bank - Postatakarekpenztar Tip by belgianchocolate
Post Office Savings Bank - Postatakarekpenztar, Budapest: 6 reviews and 9 photos
The post savings bank or the 'Postatakarékpénztar'
is a building that you need to see.
Again opinions are divided if it is a masterpiece
of 'Jugendstil' or just a blatant colorful ugly
It was build from 1899-1902. Other cities
had their Art-nouveux or 'Jugendstil' period.
All the architects wanted something new...
refreshing and break with the neo-styles.
And they did succesfully. But only here in Budapest
it is so different from for instance Brussels.
This architectural style was fashionable
only for a couple of years. Why?
Because it was too expensive.
Too expensive to design , too expensive
to build.... Pitty.
