The history of Millenáris goes back to the distant past. Originally founded by Ábrahám Ganz in the area of Pesti Hengermalom in the last century, the iron foundry later developed into the internationally renowned Ganz Villamossági Művek, which became a significant unit in Hungarian industrial history.

On the occasion of the 1000th anniversary of the founding of the state, the former prominent industrial facility of Bel-Buda, the Lövőház Street site of Ganz Villamossági Művek, has been transformed into a cultural and educational center that showcases historical and contemporary innovations in Hungarian engineering and scientific life. It functions as a community space and intellectual hub.

Through engineering and creativity, an exceptional and since unparalleled artwork has been created. Millenáris Park is a nearly six-hectare park and cultural space in the Hungarian capital, showcasing the significant multifunctional, cultural, and lifestyle values of Budapest and Europe. It is suitable for public and business events and serves as a venue for a wide range of activities.

In 2002, the architectural design of Millenáris Park, which involved the revitalization of the historic factory halls, received the Europa Nostra Award. Additionally, at the XXIII Hungarian Real Estate Development Excellence Awards, Millenáris Széllkapu Park was honored with the Special Prize of the Hungarian Urban Planning Association and also won the 1st prize in the Landscape Architecture category.

OUR STORY

On February 15th, the new building of the National Dance Theatre opened its doors. The approximately 7,000 square meter theater is located in Building E of Millenáris Park, in the former industrial hall of the Ganz Művek. It is a unique cultural venue in Budapest, featuring state-of-the-art theater technology and showcasing exceptional architectural solutions. The building was designed by ZDA – Zoboki Építésziroda.
