When the three cities of Buda, Óbuda, and Pest were joined to create Budapest in 1873, the new city needed a grand modern enclosed food market. The Great Market Hall opened in 1897 and was declared to be among the most extraordinary and elegant in the whole of Europe. Since then—and despite having been rebuilt twice—the market shines like a beacon, thanks to its unmistakable roof of iridescent multicol- ored tiles made by the famed Zsolnay ceramics fac- tory in Pécs, just a few hours to the south.
