    Lukács Bath, where Kodály conducted standing on a bench

    The building complex of the Szent Lukács Thermal Bath already existed in the 18th century; however, we can talk about today's bath only since the mid-1880s. The Lukács is a concept not only for those who want to recover, but because of its atmosphere; prominent representatives from the world of artists have often turned up here. According to a Lukács legend, their regular guest, Zoltán Kodály was even allowed to swim in the zigzag there. This week, the story of the Lukács Bath comes to life.

    May I sprinkle you? – Easter customs

    Easter is considered to be the greatest holiday in the Christian world, however, due to the additional holidays and customs associated with it, we prefer to name this period as the Easter holiday circle. In addition to its biblical implications, it is also referred to as the Feast of Coming of Spring. Since there is no set date for the Easter holiday, it is related to the spring equinox, the first full moon that follows, and is therefore considered a moving holiday. In the frame of my writing, we take a brief look at biblical relevance and festive traditions.

    Secrets of Várkert Bazár

    In the December 1874 issue of magazine Vasárnapi Újság (Sunday Newspaper), a short news item appeared: “The construction planned under the Royal Castle Garden will begin in early January, according to the blueprint of our architect Ybl, which best appealed his majesty. The constructions must be completed in 3 years. ” Construction eventually took a little longer, from 1875 to 1883. This week we are dealing with the history of the Várkert Bazár or Castle Garden Bazaar, but in the contemporary photographs, not only the building, but also the changes of the palace and the navigation on the Danube come to life.

    Forgotten monastery and church ruins

    It is always impressive when one encounters a forgotten ruin while hiking. A slightly foundered sidewall, a Gothic window frame, an elaborated chapiter in the grass, and a forest that, while guarding the ruins from uninitiated visitors, also destroys it. This week we are visiting abandoned church and monastery ruins, from Bükkszentlélek to Nagyvázsony.

During the period of the Swedish EU presidency in April 2001 in Lund, representatives of the then 15 Member States formulated their demand that a breakthrough in the field of cultural digitisation was necessary.
