The St. Stephen Room was built around the turning of the previous century by the plans of Lajos Hauszmann, who was a famous Hungarian architect. The room was constructed with the help of great Hungarians like Vilmos Zsolnay and Endre Thék. During the world fair of 1900 in Paris the room won several awards.
