In the building of their former factory an interactive exhibition waits for you to tell you more about the history of those 200 years through the lens of textile industry. Interesting for children, too!”
“The artwork depicting four women under frazzled umbrellas is situated in the heart of Óbuda's historical center. Mueums, coffee houses, restaurants are some minutes walk from here. The statues are object of debate until today: what are they dedicated to? Originally entitled 'Expectants' are obviously tarts on sentry-go, waiting for clients. The sculptor got inspired during his journey in Paris.”
