Székesfehérvár Railway Station

During wars, railway stations were the most important buildings of towns. Trains were considered to be the fastest way of transport. Enemies tried to destroy railways and railway stations.

Echo of Tihany

Tihany at Lake Balaton is one of the most spiritual places in Hungary. When the church's bells chime, that sound spreads out to the countryside. That makes this place special and powerful.

Heroes' Square

Heroes' Square is the largest square in Budapest. The Millennium Monument in the middle of the square was erected to commemorate the 1000-year-old history of the Magyars. Archangel Gabriel stands on top of the center pillar, and the seven chieftains who led the Magyar tribes to Hungary can be seen on the stand below. Statues of kings and other important historical figures stand on top of the colonnades on either side of the center pillar.

Mahart House

This house is a great example of the social-realist style of architecture with its authentic columns and details. It was originally built for the workers of the Hungarian-Soviet Shipping Rt. (Meszhart, later Mahart) in the 1950s. It can be found in Budapest, in front of a ship repairing harbour on the Danube. It was designed by Vilmos Henck and Zoltán Vidos. The building is not in the best condition, it is covered with lots of bulletmarks.
