People from almost every continent from more than 400 places, including New York, London, Odorheiu Secuiesc and Subotica, signed the petition on saving the flagship project to build a museum quarter in the City Park, the paper said.
Budapest’s new mayor, Gergely Karácsony, has placed a ban on the construction of buildings that have not yet received a construction permit.
The paper described the Liget Project as the largest cultural development of the last hundred years. It was set to include building a new National Gallery on the site of the demolished Petőfi Hall and a House of Hungarian Innovation at the site of the former Museum of Transport.
