Owner description: This ensemble of buildings is one of the monumental architectural works in Oradea and Transylvania, typical for the secession style. The architects Komor Marcell and Jakab Dezső won the contest for the construction of this complex. Two Jewish lawyers, Dr. Kurlander Ede and Dr. Emil Adorjan, decided to finance, using their own resources, the construction of a noteworthy building in Oradea. The work started in 1907, under the supervision of the civil engineer Sztarill Ferenc, and in December 1908 the building was completed. Consisting of two unequal and asymmetrical buildings, connected to a third one, placed in the middle and more isolated, the complex housed a theatre, ballrooms, a casino and offices. The Y-shaped gallery (passage) has three entrances. The Vittorio Emanuele Gallery in Milan inspired the glass-covered interior. The gallery or the Passage, as the local people know it, concentrates the most popular bars, coffee houses and pubs in the city, being the entertainment high spot of the city.

Glad to see that the building is newly renovated and its impressive design it's just beautiful. Unfortunately, there are some parts still to be renovated, the inside spaces. There are just a few coffee places/restaurants/pub/ but hopefully the city hall will maximize this building to attract more and more tourists and it will promote it.

This Arcade is very beautiful and unique atraction . The style is Art Noveau. This Black Hawk Arcade is a small part of the construction in the same style from Oradea.. Must visit this.

It's little more than a shop/cafe mall! Ok, nice glass roof... Attractive architecture...but the number 1 thing to do in Oradea?!?!

It is a staple for the town and the city center. Quite unfortunate that the inside areas ar not all rented out and active.
