Stunning bourse/arcade

Every now and then I’ll walk past something and think, oh why not poke my head inside. I come back out a few minutes later, thinking, I’ll never forget that. This was one of those spaces: Parizsi Udvar, on the corner of Kigyo utca and Petofi Sandor utca.

It reminds me a bit of Stanford Memorial Chapel in its combination of iron, tile, gilt, and combination of Gothic Revival and Ottoman styles, with a certain 19-century wrought iron flourish.

This will be material for my next batch of Moo cards.
