Kieselbach Galéria Budapest – Collection of legends

"Kieselbach Galéria" is one of the most significant galleries in Budapest, and each painting can be bought at an auction, thus it changes all the time!

I would walk by this gallery and never dared go inside for a long time - for some reason. Until, once, I saw from the outside that there was a Mednyánszky painting in there and I couldn’t resist going in. Ever since, it has been a beloved place of mine to come across on the way or go in there to check out the new collection while waiting in the area.

Kieselback gallery is one of the most significant galleries in Budapest. It is very central and its walls are full of the most well-known and significant pieces of art in Hungary from the classics to more modern ones.

Each painting can be bought at an auction and thus the collection changes continuously. The entrance is free and it is open even in the most restricted times of Covid, when all museums were closed. Its rooms are very quiet, providing a peaceful shelter from the buzz of the city. It has a really nice location, as the area is full of nice cafés.

It's sitting between Nyugati train station and Margaret Island, not far from the Parliament either. This place too - for me at least - is highly addictive!
