The Art Nouveau style palace that houses the Museum of Applied Arts is famous for its amazing green and ochre yellow dome, which is decorated by Zsolnay porcelain, with which it lures visitors to the Museum from a distance. This palace was inaugurated in 1896 in the presence of Franz Joseph I. It is the third oldest applied arts museum in the whole world. Its interior is very unique, as it is designed using Hindu, Islamic and Hungarian style elements. With the use of this eclectic combination, the architect formed his own unique style in the turn of the century’s Europe. The building’s other spectacle is the hall by the main entrance. Its fairy tale-like, richly ornamented entrance leads through a compelling salon to the vast Glass Hall with white lace-like decorations.
