Gresham Palace

Gresham Palace, originally uploaded by andreaban2009.
Taken en route back from midway on Chain Bridge to the hotel. The red car to the left of the picture is driving from Buda to Pest. ( Cool!)

Gresham Palace is now known as The Four Seasons Hotel Gresham Palace. It opened in 2004.The site was originally a palce called Nako House but when the London Gresham Life Assurance Company bought it, they demolished Nako house and built this current structure. Why Gresham? It is named after Sir Thomas Gresham the 16th century financier to Queen Elizabeth the first. It is a fine example of Art Nouveau ( French for new style)  architecture in the world. I want to stay here!!!
