Bécsi kapu tér (Vienna Gate Square)

Bécsi kapu tér (Vienna Gate Square) Review

Marking the northern entrance to Castle Hill, the stone gateway (rebuilt in 1936) called Vienna Gate opens toward Vienna—or, closer at hand, Moszkva tér a few short blocks below. The square named after it has some fine baroque and rococo houses, but is dominated by the enormous neo-Romanesque (1913–17) headquarters of the Országos Levéltár (Hungarian National Archives), a cathedral-like shrine to paperwork.
