We can also meet the seven leaders in the memorial park, writes the news portal of Southern Hungary, delmagyar.hu.
Due to the coronavirus epidemic, only 50 percent of its revenue in 2019 could be realized last year by the 50-year-old Ópusztaszer National Historical Memorial Park. Managing director Péter Kertész said that the county government will erect a 5-meter statue of Attila, the Hun leader, at the entrance.
– We had high hopes for 2020, especially since the Ópusztaszer National Historical Memorial Park was 50 years old last year.
But people are planning, Covid is doing: the epidemic has dragged our calculations through, a significant part of our jubilee events have been missed, we will hold them this year – started Péter Kertész, managing director, adding: conferences, exhibitions and publications are planned for the 50th anniversary.
Loss of income
The memorial park was forced to close on March 17 due to the coronavirus. Later, even as the risk of infection eased in the summer, it could only be kept partially open, which meant that only 49 percent of revenue in 2019 was estimated to have been met, with class trips, Easter and Pentecost events missed in addition to festive events.
– There is also good news: with the exception of temporary workers, we have kept jobs, the virus has not spread within the institution and we have not become a focal point.
Despite the still present Covid-19, they were able to improve: by queuing up, we can buy tickets online and set up a family forest playground.
– We have built a bicycle storage room with a luggage storage, the construction of a new tour information office next to the checkout will be completed by March, the old place will be a fully equipped baby-mama recreation room – Péter Kertész listed. He also mentioned that he was proud to have held an international tourism conference together with the Carpathian Basin Tourism Association.
The events that missed in 2020 – the exhibition of Árpád Feszty’s oeuvre and the memorial conference of the founder Ottó Trogmayer – are planned to be visited and to receive the planned jubilee publications this year.
– We will join the world exhibition of hunting with exhibitions, and we will revive the legend of the Hun-Hungarian kinship following the gesture of Anonymus. Referring to Attila’s coffins, a Hun archeological exhibition entitled Iron, Silver and Gold opens, and 8 museums provide material for this. The county government will erect a 5-meter statue of the leader, Attila, not far from the entrance, he said.
