Lindenbaum House

Erzsébetváros & the Jewish Quarter

The first Hungarian architect to look to art nouveau for inspiration was Frigyes Spiegel, who designed this block at the northern end of VI Izabella utca in 1896. The entire facade is covered with suns, stars, peacocks, flowers, snakes, foxes and long-tressed nudes.
