Museum of Applied Arts (Iparművészeti Múzeum)

The Museum of Applied Arts (Magyar Iparművészeti Múzeum in Hungarian)
This Art Nouveau building was built between 1893 and 1896 to the plans of Ödön Lechner and Gyula Pártos.
It is one of the most characteristic and most representative forms of Lechner's architectural style, featuring Hungarian folk ceramics,
including Zsolnay pottery and majolica, also showing Islamic and Hindu motifs.
