Opened in 1865, Pesti Vigadó is a cultural centre in - as the name suggests - the Pest side of the city. It used to be a place where formal balls were held, but it was significantly damaged in World War II. It has since been rebuilt and is now owned by the Hungarian Academy of Arts. The building has a special historical significance as this was the location of Budapest's unification on November 17 1873 when the city was founded from three parts, Pest, Buda and Óbuda.
