Zwack Unicum Rt, Budapest

We look forward to welcoming you to the Zwack Unicum Heritage Visitors’ Centre for a taste of Hungary and of Unicum, its most popular drink!

The Museum follows the story of a drink and a family that spans six generations and goes hand in hand with the history of Hungary.  The Zwack Museum covers the time of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy, followed by World War One and the carefree boom years between the wars when the Duke of Windsor was a regular visitor to Hungary and a fervent fan of the Zwack Barack Palinka, or apricot eau de vie.

Then came the devastating bombardments over Budapest when the factory was completely destroyed, the Jewish persecutions and the equally devastating “liberation” by the Russian army and the Communist take-over of all private property. The visit paints a fascinating case history of the trials and tribulations of this privately owned company for student groups of History and Business and Economics

Palace of the Arts

When the Palace of Arts, Budapest and Hungary's long-awaited new cultural hub, opened in 2005, it was built to represent more than a hundred years of Hungarian cultural history.
