The Danube Palace was built between 1883 and 1885, in a splendid Neo-Baroque style according to the plans of Vilmos Freund. At that time it was known as the casino of Lipótváros – but not in the term of gambling, but an aristocratic club for entertainment. From its built till the Second World War the Palace served as a place of culture, supported many young artists, and even Bartók, Kodály, Dvorák played in its first-class concert hall. Since 1951 the building was carrying out the cultural programs of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. Film Evita  - with Madonna in the main role - was shot in the Brown Salon. As the other rooms of the Danube Palace, these salons are often rented for various events.

Awesome ... Try both sides of the river. Although Buda is best. Go to the top of the church for a great view.
