Dear International Family!
On the 30th of September we invite you to a museum tour called 'Szeged - treasures under your feet'. 🏺🐾
Have you ever wondered about the history of Szeged? 🤔 Where does its name come from, who were the people who lived here, what struggles did they go through? Did you know there’s and „island” here named after witches 🧙♀️ (and for a good reason)? Would you like to try out how it felt to be in the infamous Szeged prison? Did you know that the Great flood 🌊 in 1879 completely ruined the town? 😲 Did you know there’s a sunken Russian tank in the river with the dead bodies of the soldiers in it? 😳 Who is the biggest Hungarian painter 🎨 and what his connection is to Szeged?
The past of the city is right under your feet 👣 and all around you! If you would like to understand it better, this tour is for you 🤗! Join us in the beautifully renovated Móra Ferenc Museum and the Castle on an interactive highlights tour with Rita Csúri-Magosi!
We will visit 3 quite different exhibitions:
- History of Szeged (in the Castle) 🤓
- Conquest of Hungary (Painting by Mihály Munkácsy) 🖼
- Móra forest (about the famous director of the Musuem) 🌳
At the end of the tour we will literally climb up to the top of the Museum and enjoy the wonderful view from up there. 😍 The view of a city you now know so much more intimately. After the guided tour you can wander around the museum on your own and visit the fascinating exhibition featuring the life of Sisi 👑, the wife of the Austro-Hungarian emperor Ferenc József I.
We are looking forward to see you there!
