Vigadó (usually translated as "Place for
Merriment") is Budapest's second largest concert hall, located on the
Eastern bank of the Danube in Budapest, Hungary. Although the acoustics are
lacking, the building itself, designed by Frigyes Feszl in 1859, makes a bold
impression along the Pest embankment. The Budai Vigadó is the home stage of the
Hungarian State Folk Ensemble (The House of Traditions), the group having
started in 1951 with Hungarian traditional dance and music. The group consists
of 30 dancers, a Gypsy band of 14, and a 5-member folk band.
