Fővárosi Szabó Ervin Könyvtár
The Metropolitan Ervin Szabó Library's main branch is housed in the 19th-century neo-baroque Wenckheim Palace.
The municipal library needed more space as its collection grew, so it expanded to a network of additional buildings while restoring the palace as a national monument. The library is now 13,000 m² and houses Budapest's largest public collection of books with a capacity for 1,100,000 volumes.
In 2003, the International Real Estate Federation awarded the Prix d’Excellence to its central building.
