The most gorgeous Bauhaus designs in the world are in Hungary

Bauhaus was a style popular in the early twentieth century, featuring a combination of traditional designs and futuristic curves. In Hungary, the style was all the rage, especially in architecture. Here are some of the most gorgeous examples.
