Budapest Series – 2. Water City (Víziváros) on the Buda Side

 

By Beatrix Koch

This second part of the Budapest series will feature two drawings by Zoltán André.

Both pictures are motive-gesture, architectural and  intuitive drawings of one of the most beautiful parts of Budapest, the Víziváros (literally: “Watertown”).

Víziváros is a part of Budapest, on the Buda side of the Danube, just under the Castle Hill. With twisting streets, and old, cozy houses and staircases.

It is a part of the city that revives the feeling of ancient ages. A unique quality of this area is that the entrances of the houses are all about one meter below the water level. Víziváros has been a busy part of the city ever since Roman times, the Turks even built a bath here, which is still open to visitors.

The Szalag street and the Pala street are crossing streets in the Víziváros.
