200+ Skeletons Discovered In Buda
More than 200 skeletons have been found on a corner plot of Rómer Flóris utca and Margit Boulevard, where an office building is under construction.

Gergely László, project manager of the investor Codic Hungary, said the skeletons date from the Turkish era and the 18th century, which is not too surprising, as there is a Franciscan church adjacent.

As the area is an archaeological site, the investor has been working on the excavation with the Budapest History Museum.

The skeletons have been transported to the museum for anthropological research.

    If you think about it, Hungarians are not the only people to be partial to lions, as they are like book ends on gateposts of villas in suburbia and guardians of monuments all over the world. Everywhere you go there are crests and doorknockers and gargoyles and fountains with the Lion King theme.

    Hungarian culture is a creative and cohesive force without which not only can we not survive, but neither can we live; and it is perhaps not even worth living without, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said at the funeral of Honorary President of the Hungarian Academy of Arts György Fekete at the Fiumei út cemetery in Budapest on Tuesday.
