Charity Auction

Creating is good, creating together is even better!

Scheduled end of auction:

The auction sale of the painting serves charitable purposes. In the autumn of 2022, our guests could create on the canvas placed at the entrance of the Aranybástya Restaurant. The aim of the project was to sell the work at a charity auction, offering the amount to the Pál Zsótér Foundation. The painting is approved by an art historian. Alexandra Hegedűs, a young visual artist currently exhibiting at the restaurant, provided the basic motif on the canvas, after which the guests continued the painting according to their own taste. The finished work has an eclectic, unique style.


The History of our Building


On the former site of our building stood a Turkish fortification, the polygonal Golden Bastion, which was completely destroyed when the castle was recaptured in 1686, its remains still visible at the bastion level. After its destruction, the remarkable classicist palace was built, designed. Ybl and commissioned by Count Menyhért Lónyay, Prime Minister and former Finance Minister of Hungary. The building was taken over by Baron Ferenc Hatvany some time between 1915 and 1923, from which time forth it became one of the most symbolic reference points of Budapest’s cultural life, home to many famous paintings and treasures. In 1944 most of the Hatvany art collection was stolen, while the building itself was destroyed in a bomb attack .
