The largest collection of Hungarian Art

by Victor Grigore, Webphoto.ro

The Hungarian National Gallery is found inside Buda Castle and holds a large collection of paintings and sculptures spanning from the medieval religious art, Gothic, Renaissance to modern experiments and contemporary art. The building that hosts this exhibition, the former royal palace, is even more impressive than the collection itself. Outside there is an equestrian statue of Eugene of Savoy overlooking the Danube. After you climb the hill of Buda on which the palace is found you can enjoy a beautiful panorama of Pesta, the main part of Budapest, including the Parliament building.
Over 6000 paintings, 2000 sculptures and thousands of other objects are exposed at Magyar Nemzeti Galeria. The collections include: medieval and Renaissance carved stone, wooden sculptures from the Gothic period, Baroque art, 19th and 20th century paintings and sculptures.
