History / Background
The history of one of the most impressive residential buildings of the city dates back to the beginning of the 20th century. The building complex consisting of seven buildings and six courts connecting 2 streets. The beautiful facade of the buildings constituting Gozsdu Court were restored to their original appearance. Its history dates back to the year 1900, namely the Gozsdu Foundation established by Emanuel Gozsdu began to cause to design the building in that year, and then, two years later, it started to cause to construct it. The design of the Gozsdu Court was produced by Győző Czigler, a University professor and an eminent architect of that age. Together with the building, the erstwhile imposing row of shops are as well renovated; the unique passage to come into existence this way is provide a special forum for craftsmen and artists of fine arts. The chain of courts interconnecting the Kiraly and Dob streets are formed by seven buildings and by six courts enclosed by the buildings. This peculiar and unique passage interconnects and interlaces both downtown streets running parallel to one another, by forming a kind of chain of passageways leading through the buildings. The staircases of the building blocks will open out of the valuated passageways. The erstwhile and existing shops, respectively, open into the atriums and partly they are situated under the vaults.

The imposing row of shops of the Gozsdu Court are renovated as the four-storied building blocks. On the upper floors, apartments of luxury standards are developed, and the shop premises are accommodate restaurants offering special gastronomic experiences, the vineries specialized in Hungarian wines and shops offering various services required by modern lifestyle.

The Gozsdu Court is renovated by preserving its original and exclusive trait so that it should also meet all requirements laid on modern living places. The restoration of the building is also created the possibility of implementing the Madách promenade. Thus, this part of the downtown, which was declared by the UNESCO to be part of the World Heritage, became richer by a really impressive building complex.
