Liszt Music Academy

Erzsébetváros & the Jewish Quarter

The art nouveau Liszt Music Academy, built in 1907, attracts students from all over the world and is Budapest's top classical-music concert hall. The renovated interior, which has two concert halls and is richly embellished with Zsolnay porcelain and frescoes, is worth visiting on a guided tour if you’re not attending a performance.
