Last week in my post about Budapest I mentioned that when we arrived at our accomodation - Avantegarde Apartments, in the Jewish Quarter- and we opened the door to the little terrace at the back I was thrilled to see some murals painted on the wall of buildings adjoining an empty block of land.
The next day I walked to the street behind - Nagydiófa utca (street) to take photos of the 3 gigantic murals. And they probably won't be there long, as there was already some building machinery there, so once new buildings go up, the murals might just be blocked from view.

Luckily on the internet I was able to find out a bit more about the murals, and here is what I discovered. Painted for the Szines Varos Festival (Colourful City festival), initiative which started in 2008 which is held yearly in late summer when a number of murals and pieces of street art appear all around the city of Budapest.
Dionysus - The Greek God of Wine and the Grape Harvest, a 200 m2 mural painted in 8 days in 2017 by local artist Attila Balogh.
Poseidon - God of the Sea, a 230m2 mural painted by Spanish artist Spok and French artist Korse.
And the last one is Urban Style - a 240m2 mural painted in 3 days by Russian artist Andrey Adno, representing the multi-faceted, beautiful and artistic city of Budapest.
And this was my first sighting of the murals from our apartment terrace at Avantgarde apartments.
