Atlas Obscura Belle Époque Artist Colony Garden in Budapest

Many Budapest locals have heard the name Epreskert, but only a few are actually familiar with the history of the aesthetic wonderland hidden behind the garden walls. The park has been one of the most important bases for the city’s art scene for well over a century now.

The romantically named Epreskert (translated as “Mulberry Garden” or “Strawberry Garden”) near Andrássy Avenue was originally a municipal mulberry field, farmed until the 1870s. As the area became urbanized, the city donated pieces of the land to artists who had performed municipal work.
