János Arany’s most precious manuscripts and other documents arrived in National Széchényi Library from Nagyszalonta-based János Arany Memorial Museum in February 2018, so as to be restored by experts.

Theatrical families, theatrical dynasties – exhibition

There have been several famous Hungarian acting families and acting dynasties, several members of which became well-known, and whose names still sound good today. The best-known of them, the Lendvay, Egressy, Vízváry, Márkus and Latabár acting families will be highlighted by presenting their history and family trees, with the help of period graphics and photographs.

Treasures were exchanged in National Széchényi Library

Two unique books returned to their worthy place on June 11, 2018. One of them is a work by Kelemen Mikes, that had been saved from fire during the Hungarian Revolution of 1956, and which is now returned from the United States. The other one is a long forgotten publication, emerging after several decades and rightfully belonging to the Franciscans of Buda.
