By the end of the 19th century, Budapest had become a pulsating, vibrating world city in terms of both culture and finance, so many insurance firms opened offices here. Many of these buildings have been converted into hotels (e.g. Four Seasons – Gresham, Ritz Carlton – Adria Insurance, New York Palace). Some others are still waiting for something to happen – like the famous Anker House (6 Deák Ferenc tér), the big yellow building which is impossible to miss. For more interesting facts, historic details, urban legends and beautifully illustrated maps, Kinga Tittel’s handy Budapest guide book, Fabulous Budapest is available at selected Libri and Líra bookstores, at the online Libra Bookshop, the gift shop of the Matthias Church, Opera gift shop, Souvenir Shop at District 1., 8 Tárnok Street.
