Széna Square Modernisation Ahead
The modernisation of Széna tér in Budapest is expected to start in June 2019 and is planned to be completed by late 2020.

Budapest city council on Wednesday approved the documents necessary for designing and implementing the modernisation.

The goal is to move a bus terminal from the square and renew the area to make the square as large and green a public space as possible.

Noise and air pollution are expected to decrease as a result of the facelift.

The overall cost of the project is about Ft 2.5 billion.

    Opera House Closed For Restoration

    The Hungarian State Opera’s 2017/18 season will get off to an unusual start, since the Opera House will not be opening its doors in September. The modernisation means that the season will start at the Erkel Theatre, and while there will be fewer programmes than usual, their diversity will match that of previous years. The Opera Visit, the Opera Shop and the Opera Café at the Opera House are still open to the public.
