Opulency and Terror in New Leopold Town of Budapest

 

Shanty-town, industrial factories, bohemian halls… in the end of the XIX. century these were the three keypoints of the New Leopold Town (Újlipótváros). The young and ambitious Hungarian architects of the national modernism began here in the Thirties the construction of the first art deco style tenement houses with every modern conveniences. A few years later hell broke to loose, and innocents people were shot on the riverside of the Danube. Like a response, the embassies of the neutral countries like Spain, Switzerland, and Sweden, put under protection entire yellow star houses for saving as much more jews. Let’s go to explore the secrets of the 13 th district of Budapest! We are not going to see only the most important real estate development of the 1930 th , but we’ll explore the real story of the yellow star houses.

In my childhood, we visited a lot of times my relatives in Germany, and travelling became soon one of my passions. After moving to Budapest – where I continued my studies – and starting to get to know the city better, I was enthusiastic about showing friends and relatives around or getting foreigners acquainted with the Hungarian culture and traditions. Eventually, it occurred to me that I should become a tour guide.
In Budapest, you constantly come across hidden statues, interesting monuments or famous buildings. You immediately become fascinated by the variety of architectural styles and a wide range of different programmes and facilities. As a tour guide, I would like to help people discover the unknown values and treasures of Budapest.
