Deutsch Palace

The palace was designed by Mihály Erdélyi with majolica ornaments in green, blue and orange and built between 1900 and 1902. It is a spectacular example of the Hungarian art nouveau style, the exterior and the staircases designed by Ödön Lechner upon Erdélyi’s request. The harmonic combinations of colours being applied on the facade which were brave at the time of the construction are made unique by Zsolnay ceramic ornaments inspired by folk arts patterns. The light blue pirogranite tympan waving slightly among the dynamical friezes of the side wings crowns the front of the building, the ornaments being the balconies either closed and porcelain like or with nicely formed ornamental foliages of wrought iron. The entrance door having wrought iron railing deserves attention thanks to its unique craftsmanship.
