Visitors to Budapest are often impressed by its wonderful late 19th and early 20th century buildings, incorporating motifs from old Hungarian architecture. If you are an art lover looking for a truly unique architectural style while in Hungary or if you like to explore different styles than you’ll find Hungarian Art Nouveau fascinating. The Art Noveau ("New Art" in French) was a popular style of art between 1890 and 1910, known as Jugendstil, Modernisme and Secession. In Hungary it was quite popular; some of the country's most famous architects designed buildings in this style. Some of them were inspired by traditional Hungarian decorative designs, Transylvanian traditions, or Far East (Indian or Syrian) style.
