The building complex of the Castle Bazaar, opened in 1883, is located at the far end of the Hungarian royal Castle Garden where Buda meets the Danube. The ground floor of the Neo-Renaissance building, which was designed 200 years ago by Miklos Ybl, was first rented and run by small shops. The two rental palaces on the sides showcased the Historical Portrait Gallery; they once also housed a painting school and a hotel. Later the area of the bazaars was filled with the workshops of various artists. From 1961 the neerly collapsed Castle Bazaar was renovated and reopened as a Youth Park with live music to dance to. The park became the most crowd-pleasing and well-known place in no time, which welcomed both aspiring and renowned bands. Since cultural politics of the contemporary state party banned jazz bands from giving concerts, the rebellious youth demanded modern Western music even more. Soon internationally acknowledged bands such as Illés, Syrius, Hobo, Piramis, Edda and P. Mobil performed in the Bazaar. The audience also had the opportunity to enjoy the wonderful plays of other great artists such as Béla Lakatos Szakcsi, Aladár Pege and Béla Radics. Eventually the park had to be closed because the building began to fall apart. The complete renovation of the Castle Garden was finished in 2014 based on the plans of 2011. Today this great monument is considered a major tourist attraction and welcomes all visitors awaiting to show off its several new functions along with a brand new multifunctional event center.
