Mirrored Hallway at the Szabo Ervin Library

The Szabo Ervin Library in Budapest, Hungary is a beautiful place. Much of the building is a modern library, but in the central library is a preserved palace, Wenckheim Palace. It was built by Count Frigyes Wenckheim (1842 – 1912), a well-known aristocrat of the end of the 19th century, the owner of a vast estate with the membership of the Parliament.

 

The City Council purchased the building and converted the beautiful palace rooms into reading rooms for their new library in 1931.
