A short essay can only flag the problem of creation of the image of Budapest as a capital city, and a symbol or epitome, of the Hungarian Kulturnation. I will focus on four matters: first, a few examples will be used to briefly exemplify the ideo­logical programme of Historicist architecture. Second, the reception of this pro­gramme in the period’s journalistic writing will be shown (in brief, again), with particular emphasis on the craving for paralleling the West. Third, I will show how the Art Nouveau, rebelling against Historicism, essentially took over its historical mission. And, fourth, I will show the ways in which certain authors discerned already then the pretentiousness, or superficiality, of success. To end with, I will make a reference to the Sonderweg issues.
