Ybl House To Host Exhibitions
The Ybl Water House located on the Danube embankment in Buda will open its doors in the autumn to host scientific conferences and contemporary fine art exhibitions following extensive renovations.

The structure located at the foot of Buda Castle was designed by 19th-century architect Miklós Ybl, and is part of the royal palace complex. As indicated by its name it had functioned as the hydro-house of the water supply system of the palace.

With the passage of time, the water house lost its function, the entire building was transformed into a restaurant, and a dance hall was installed in a large garden.

The building was renovated after the change of regime, operating as a casino and a location for special events before it closed down ten years ago.
