History of Párisi Udvar
Párisi Udvar (Parisian Court) in Budapest used to be a magnificent shopping arcade located at Ferenciek tere (Square of the Franciscans). It was built between 1909 and 1913 and the arcade is a brilliant masterpiece in Eclecticism style, which combines elements of different architectural styles (Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque). Nowadays the building is empty and dark. There aren’t any shops left, but only security guards.
