Három Holló – Drei Raben – A poet’s favourite

Near the Liberty Bridge, with a great view over the Church of the Assumption of Budapest lies a coffee shop/cultural centre named Három Holló – Three Ravens. 

A hundred years ago, Budapest was swarming with coffeehouses where people could read newspapers and meet politicians, artists and like-minded people. One of the greatest Hungarian poets Endre Ady’s favourite place was Három Holló, so as a homage to him, the place reopened on the 140th anniversary of his birthday. The place even has a small shrine-like corner dedicated to him with pictures, paintings & a statue.

The modern Három Holló has two storeys: the ground floor is the coffee house itself with more than reasonably priced caffeinated and soft drinks and a substantial wine selection (Ady would have been pleased – wine was his favourite!). The atmosphere is calm and friendly, with a decor which glances back to the traditions of the turn of the century. And of course, you can have a glance at the city through the large windows. 

The lower level is an extensive space for discussions, concerts, readings, theatrical events or exhibitions. Even small-scale festivals can be held here, like the cultural anthropological festival called Symbiosis.

The idea behind Három Holló is to have a space where people of different backgrounds can meet and bring the world forward by sharing their ideas and experiences while sipping on a cup of coffee – just like a hundred years ago. And it works!

Attention: the entrance is on Szabad sajtó út, don’t miss it!
