Budapest, Hungary


Anastasia Chukovskaya

Óbuda today is a quiet residential district but it actually is the place where Budapest began – it used to be home to Romans who left the traces of a 14,000-seat amphitheater of II century AD. If you walk around you can stumble across a synagogue with a colonnade and a neoclassical portico of 1820 which has been converted into a TV studio as well as ancient churches and monuments.
Szentélek tér still has the 19th century estates, including houses of the op art guru Victor Vasarely, the gallery of sculptor Imre Varga with a sculpture of ladies with umbrellas by the entrance and mosaics with Hercules in the Roman villa ruins by the square.
