Óbudai Island In Budapest To Host New Rowing Centre
The government has set aside Ft 628 million for construction of a protecting dam on Óbudai Island in Budapest, it was announced in official gazette Magyar Közlöny.

The government last week withdrew its application to have the island declared a Unesco World Heritage site without explanation, Napi recalls.

As a result, the property development project will proceed more easily.

The government asked Human Resources Minister Miklós Kásler to develop plans to build the Katalin Kovács Kayak-Canoe Sports Academy on the island, also known as Hajógyári Island, home to the annual Sziget Festival.
