A whale in the heart of Budapest

The CET (in English whale, by
its shape) is the biggest cultural,
shopping and entertainment
complex in Budapest, just on the
bank of the Danube.
The owner of the building is the
Capital City of Budapest, and it will be opened in August, 2011.

The new location's total area will be almost 31.000 m2, of which 12.500 m2 will
be usable. At the CET's heart lies the 1050 seat multifunctional event hall, and
an underground garage of 250 parking lots will ensure due utilization.
The CET will provide the multi-coloured enjoyment of life.
