Robert Capa Contemporary Photography Center
Leading the charge for contemporary Hungarian photography, photographer Robert Capa famously captured the Spanish Civil War and World War II, as well as the wars in China and Vietnam, on film. He became known as one of the top war photographers of his time. Today, the Robert Capa Contemporary Photography Center aims to display and promote the best in documentary and modern photography from Hungary and around the world.

Housed in a beautiful Art Nouveau building, the museum is constantly bringing in new talent to showcase as well as exhibiting some of Capa’s best and rarest work. Famously he remarked “‘If your picture isnt good enough, you’re not close enough.” Temporary exhibitions rotate frequently, but are always showcasing the best in modern visual arts — often with the use of multimedia and LCD projection. The walls are lined with some of the most striking and significant imagery you’ll see coming from behind the lens today.
