    Frigyes Feszl 200

    During his lifetime, he made so many plans and tenders, sometimes in associations, sometimes individually; some of them were rewarded, yet his ideas did not materialize, other buildings were built, but they are no longer visible today. The most significant work of his oeuvre received a mixed reception among both contemporary architects and the citizens of Pest, and after the completion of the building, he did not receive major assignments any more. Despite all this, we can respect him as one of the most original personalities of Hungarian and even European romantic architecture. We remember Frigyes Feszl, who was born 200 years ago.

    Walking on Rózsadomb

    Being a Rózsadomb (Rose Hill) resident is perhaps still synonymous with wealth. Of course, there was a time, when the image of this Buda area was determined not by luxury villas but vineyards. Then came the grape phylloxera, and the owners, blacksmiths, were replaced by the citizens who wanted to spend their holiday there. We invite you for a walk on Rózsadomb this week.

    The uncrowned kings of the Rococo: The Klauber brothers’ workshop in Augsburg

    If the concept of brand building, marketing, or public relations had existed in the 18th century, it would probably have been illustrated with the Klauber brothers. The brothers established an engraving company in Augsburg in the 1740s, which also employed independent artists, and became the European centre for Catholic icon publishing, and reformed Christian iconography through new representative engraving series, leading it to new paths in the Rococo.

    Gáspár Fábián, the church builder

    „What about you, Mr. Fabian?! You decorate all your tasks with a tower!" Indeed, Gáspár Fábián is best known as a church builder, and as his autobiographical memoirs show, his dear teacher Virgil Nagy had already noticed his attraction in this direction during his university years. His most significant legacies are the Church of the Holy Cross on Üllői Road, the Holy Family in Szondi Street, St. Vincent de Paul on Haller Square, or the Ottokár Prohászka Memorial Church in Székesfehérvár. This week we are going to revive the oeuvre of Dr. Gáspár Fábián.

    The Bulgarian community in Hungary

    Bulgarians are one of the thirteen officially recognized nationalities of Hungary. The Bulgarians living here are usually identified with the Bulgarian gardeners, although their traders were also well represented. Until the middle of the last century, a metropolitan market was almost unthinkable without the presence of Bulgarian gardeners. In fact, they revolutionized our horticulture by laying the foundation stones for modern vegetable growing. This week, we pay tribute to the Bulgarian community living in Hungary.

Virtual exhibitions

vk_kv_8x5

Besides searching and browsing digitized cultural contents, visitors can view thematic virtual exhibitions from the records of MaNDA’s database, which are widened weekly. Our aim with the exhibitions is to introduce the cultural contents of the database in a new context, in a way that they would never be in the same virtual room otherwise, due to their spatial, legal or formal features. You can see our former exhibitions under this menu.

Establishment of Europeana

europeana_800x512

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. One of their most important issues was that a cooperative forum should be created in order to put cultural digitisation in the European dimension and the accessibility and visibility of the European digital cultural heritage must be promoted.
