Kecskemet Town Hall, Kecskemet

The Kecskemét City Hall is the house of the main administration of the city of Kecskemét, Bács-Kiskun County, Hungary. It was built in 1893.
The building was designed by Ödön Lechner and Gyula Pártos. The decoration of the building, which consists of Zsolnay tile patterns inspired by old Magyar and Turkic folk art, was the start of the National Romanticism movement, which culminated in the Museum of Applied Arts in Budapest.
The building itself is more of a mixture between renaissance and baroque styles, for which it has been criticized by National Romanticists like Károly Kós.
Bertalan Székely, who also decorated the interior of the Matthias Church in Budapest, painted gilded murals on the interior of the Grand Hall.
