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.

“Amazing place”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

Basically, "Vulturul Negru" is a covered gallery with shops and restaurants. The amazing thins about it is the ceiling, a beautiful glass texture with amazing shapes. Visit it by daylight and you'll be amazed.

“Lovely arcade”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

We found it from the map we obtained from the hotel although we had no clue what it is about.

There are cafes, restaurants and shops. We decided to have a sip after walking around the town. As we arrived there late afternoon so it was not so busy. As the time progressed, more and more people arrived.

Great place to have a break!
