Chapter 4

1900_Royal1890’s – After its opening, the Royal became a popular, regular haunt of contemporary Hungarian writers and journalists, including Jenô Heltay, Sándor Hunyadi, Lajos Nagy, and Gyula Krúdy.

The first screening in Budapest of a motion picture by the Lumiére brothers also took place at the hotel and later became highly successful as a regular exhibition.
