The Golden Age of Buda


The Golden Age of Buda, the fifteenth century, is best illustrated by the buildings at Nos. 18-22 in Országház utca. Many similar Gothic buildings lined the streets at that time. Proceeding southwards from Szentháromság tér, Nos. 14-16 in Tárnok utca offer a similar sight. An attentive visitor walking along Úri utca, Fortuna utca and Disz tér will discover many other beautiful things, medieval, Baroque and neo- Classic mansions. Gothic details can also be discerned behind the more recent exteriors, since newly discovered remains have been built into the buildings during their reconstruction.
