Every one of us has a dream … In the early 1800’s, architect Mr. Mihály Pollack and Baron Brudern envisioned the most sophisticated modern department store of the period. Decades later stakeholders of the City Savings Bank were cherishing other dreams: the silhouette of another luxurious building started to be outlined. There is no need to mention that all merchants and storekeepers living those times in Budapest entertained highest dreams of having a shoproom at the lavishly decorated, elegant Paris Court.
This is, indeed, a magical world where past and future, as well as luxury and highest world standards abut. For about a hundred years, Paris Court has been a constant enchantment for all people who are fervent admirers of prodigiously beautiful. In the past few years, however, the proprietor, as well as architects, restorers, stonemasons, sculptors, mechanical engineers, IT specialists, distinguished experts of hotel business and fine dining did not let themselves dwelling on dreams for too long, but started to realise them.
