    Klotild Palaces

    Ferenciek Square owes its present form to the regulation of downtown Pest, but even more so to the construction of the Erzsébet Bridge. It is unfortunate that the narrow, winding little streets, the old city hall of Pest and many shops on Kígyó Square also fell victim to such a large-scale plan. However, the bridge needed a road to divert traffic to it. This is how the image of the square, which is the structural centre of the capital, changed at the turn of the century, and so new buildings were born, such as the Klotild palaces that still dominate the square.

    „King of trains, train of kings” – The Orient Express

    Luxury wherever your eyes can see, dashing and beautiful landscapes. Everything that means the Orient Express. If we lived at the turn of the 19th-20th centuries and belonged to a group of nobility, it would be almost an expectation to be part of the experience offered by the luxury train at least once, where the point is not really the destination but the journey. Among our fellow passengers, there would have been for example, the Bulgarian Tsar Ferdinand I, Danilo Crown Prince of Montenegro, or an Indian Maharaja who set out with all his wives.

    Legendary confectioneries – the Megay’s

    If the confectionery in Miskolc could have a centre, where the best confectionery shops in the city operated, it was Széchenyi Street. Not surprisingly, as it was the easiest to lure passers-by in the main street to the store for some goodies. Especially if you could get a mouth-watering dessert that even Archduke Joseph praised. The success of Megay Confectionery could not be broken even by an accidental gas explosion; this week we’ll take a look at the history of this legendary confectionery.

    Esterházy Castle, the „Hungarian Versailles”

    The castle of Fertőd is the most impressive baroque castle in Hungary. Its construction began in 1720 according to the plans of Anton Erhard Martinelli, commissioned by József Esterházy. However, its heyday was in the time of Prince Miklós (the Bright) Esterházy. The castle was the musical centre of the period and the site of magnificent balls. In addition to its significance in music history - Haydn spent almost two decades in the service of the Prince - it is also unique architecturally. This week, the history of the castle comes to life.

    The heart of the Danube Bend

    Vác, the heart of the Danube Bend, has been inhabited for a long time due to its favourable conditions.  Its name was first mentioned in the founding charter of the Garamszentbenedek abbey in 1075. However, there are several theories about the origin of the town name, one of which says that the place name was derived from a personal name: a hermit named Vác, who lived in the area. This week we are going to visit the city of Vác.

Virtual exhibitions

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.
