On the Grand Boulevard of Budapest, just one hundred feet from the river Danube, stands an impressive theatre building. Its elegant and radiant late-nineteen-century design makes it the final section of the Boulevard’s most attractive building. Evening, that time of the day when theatres are most alive, finds it in full bloom. It is no wonder that so many people fall in love with the building on first sight. The Vígszínház is one of the finest examples of theatre buildings designed by Fellner and Helmer, whose 19th century "new-standard theatres" can be found scattered across central Europe.
