A bálna / The whale / 4 working man and 21 seagulls

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

CET = Central European Time. CET is also a synonym for a whale. The 27,000 sqm development on the banks of the river Danube in Budapest, Hungary will be used as a cultural and commercial centre with a large event hall, retail units and catering units. The project involves the renovation of the old warehouses and building a whale-shaped, "non-standard" extension between them. Construction is delayed. The CET concept refers to Budapest as an important metropolitan centre in the heart of Central Europe. The CET shape somehow refers to the smooth and friendly streamlined body of a whale. The new CET development has the potential to put Budapest once again on the map of the world. Name and shape of the CET symbolizes its cultural potential and commercial pole position in one of the best preserved cities in the world.

A bálna 160 méter hosszú, legszélesebb pontján 48 méter, magassága 23 méter, összterülete 31 ezer négyzetméter. Az épületben különleges éttermek, panorámás dunai teraszok, hazai és világmárkákat kínáló divat- és dizájnüzletek, valamint galériák és kiállítások kapnak helyet.


This new building is a whale-shaped construction between two existing warehouses on the banks of the river Danube in Budapest. Construction is 95 per cent complete.

There are two old Elevator Buildings - you can see in my photo- where the goods were distributed to the 6 warehouses wich originally occupied the banks of the Danube. The two old building is modified to New building, you can see above and it is called Whale.

Hát, ha nem nagyon sietsz akkor igen. De ha soká érsz ide akkor még lehet a gyalogos hidat is fogsz találni a Duna felett.

(vagy vele párhuzamosan)
