Then WHY should you choose US?
Maybe because we want to show something about Hungarian art and artists as well.
With our decoration, design and set up we would like to show you our painters, inventors, architects and our city. You can also see the art pieces of our contemporary artist friends.
So if you are a bit culture minded and would like to know a bit more about us, about our culture and the famous Hungarians, hopefully we can offer something for your taste.
If it was not enough, here are some more reasons:
