The Zugliget terminal of the Buda Horsecar and later the tram traffic, now a protected building, recovered its one-time beauty in the reconstruction, and, complemented with catering and exhibition spaces, is connected to the circulatory system of Budapest. The almost 150-year building was gradually transformed during the 20th century. Our reconstruction and development plan was aimed to re-establish the original appearance for example by reconstructing the original roof structure which was hidden before.
