The building that once stood in the place of today's Pesti Vigadó called Redoute, which was constructed on the basis of Mihály Pollack's plans and opened in 1833, was the home of the highest culture at the time of its completion. In those days the building was associated with the birth of the Hungarian middle class and the Hungarian nation, and actually the first representative parliamentary session was also held in Redoute, which – for this reason – was completely destroyed by the Austrian troops during the Hungarian Revolutionof 1848-1849.
