    Olympic Tales

    Olympics will be here soon. For many of us it is pure excitement, baggy eyes and daily routine timed to the Hungarian team’s appearance. It is an event that sticks people in front of the telly, even those who are not real sport fans. You can browse among Olympic badges and stamps issued in the honour of our winners. Besides that, you can see the Olympic relics and medals of gymnast Olga Törös, fencer Zoltán Horváth and Áron Szilágyi and wrestler István Majoros.

    Ferenc Martyn, master of abstract surrealism

    At the dawn of the 20th century, three young artists spread their wings from the vicinity of József Rippl-Rónai: among them Sándor Galimberti, the pioneer of Hungarian cubism; Aurél Bernáth, who was a cubo-expressionist and later post-impressionist painter in his early period; and Ferenc Martyn (1899-1986), one of the most important representatives of abstract surrealism in Hungary. In our latest article, we take a look at his art.

    Cultural history of the Tatra Mountains – dragon bones, treasure hunters and sanatoria

    The High Tatras are an Alpine holiday place that can be reached with a half-day journey from Budapest. They provide hiking and mountain climbing opportunities, fascinating peaks and clear fresh air. Tourism appeared in the 1820s at the feet of the Tatras, and splendid hotels of the Monarchy were built soon. Our virtual exhibition reveals how the common history of the massif and the people developed during the past couple of centuries.

    The first public hospital in Pest, the Rókus

    Health care institutions have been present in Pest for centuries, but it was only with the opening of the St. Rókus Hospital that the spital, which emphasized healing rather than nursing and separation, became available to citizens. Initially a poorhouse, the institution is associated with many important milestones in Hungarian health care: it played an important role during the plague and cholera epidemics of the 18th and 19th centuries. Ferenc Flór and Ignác Semmelweis worked here, and at the turn of the century, X-rays were already used in diagnostics.

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.
