Guided tours with presentation of museum pieces

Our guided tours focus on the history of the University Library and Archives, Eötvös Loránd University. The library palace was designed by Antal Szkalnitzky. Up-to-date technology of the time was used for ventilation, heating and illumination. The tour will take you through the entrance hall decorated with sgraffiti to the reading room with figures on its ceiling which symbolise sciences and arts. Besides the magnificent art and architecture of the reading room of the University Library and Archives, you can also see an oil-painting of the middle-aged Franc Joseph I. by Mór Than and the reconstruction of the Perczel Globe. Our librarians will tell you the secrets, and show you the hidden nooks and crannies of the library. Join our library tour! More details about our programs are available here.
