Budapest Museum of Applied Arts

Having visited many of the sights of Budapest on a previous stay, during my free morning before catching  the plane I concentrated on the area close to my hotel which included the Museum of Aplied Arts
The building itself is the star, with spectacular ceramic roof tiles and a 'mooresque' interior modeled on the Alhambra , Granada
I'd seen a  couple of the programmes about Art Noveau on BBC4 and they had some lovely examples of glass and furniture displayed . Not sure it justified the 10 Euro entrance fee but then I'm spoilt by the V&A  and free entry to exhibitions with my staff pass!
