    [1] 09/07/2011 - Dernière modification le 12/11/2019 Van Abbe Museum The Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven is one of the first public museums for contemporary art to be established in Europe. The museum’s collection of around 2700 works of art includes key works and archives by Lissitzky, Picasso, Kokoschka, Chagall, Beuys, McCarthy, Daniëls and Körmeling. The museum has an experimental approach towards art’s role in society. Openness, hospitality and knowledge exchange are important. We challenge ourselves and our visitors to think about art and its place in the world, covering a range of subjects, including the role of the collection as a cultural 'memory' and the museum as a public site. International collaboration and exchange have made the Van Abbemuseum a place for creative cross-fertilisation and a source of surprise, inspiration and imagination for its visitors and participants.

    [4] 08/10/2011 - Dernière modification le 01/11/2019 The Ardennes American Cemetery and Memorial is home to the graves of 5,329 members of the United States military who died in World War II. It is one of fourteen cemeteries for American World War II dead on foreign soil, and is administered by the American Battle Monuments Commission. The ninety and a half acre cemetery and memorial is located in Neuville-en-Condroz, near the southeast edge of Neupré, Wallonia, Belgium. It is one of three American war cemeteries in Belgium, the other two being at Flanders Field and Henri-Chapelle. Layout and memorial The Ardennes American Cemetery is generally rectangular in shape. Its grave plots are arranged in the form of a Greek cross separated by two broad intersecting paths. At the east end of the traverse path is a bronze figure symbolizing American youth, designed by sculptor C. Paul Jennewein. The cemetery is surrounded on all sides by stands of trees. An approach drive leads to the memorial, a rectangular structure bearing on its south facade a massive American eagle with three figures symbolizing Justice, Liberty, and Truth and thirteen stars representing the United States. This facade was designed by C. Paul Jennewein. The facade on the far (north) end, which overlooks the burial area, bears the insignia in mosaic of the major United States units which operated in northwest Europe in World War II. Along the outside of the memorial are the "Tablets of the Missing", granite slabs on which are inscribed the names of 462 American missing (15 Navy and 447 Army and Army Air Forces) who gave their lives in the service of their country, but whose remains were never recovered or identified. Within the memorial are a chapel, three large wall maps composed of inlaid marble, marble panels depicting combat and supply activities and other ornamental features.

  • Istanbul, Basilica Cistern
    https://www.gaudry.be > Photo > Galerie
    [9] 20/02/2012 - Dernière modification le 06/11/2019 The Basilica Cistern (Turkish: Yerebatan Sarayı - "Sunken Palace", or Yerebatan Sarnıcı - "Sunken Cistern"), is the largest of several hundred ancient cisterns that lie beneath the city of Istanbul (formerly Constantinople), Turkey. The cistern, located 500 feet (150 m) southwest of the Hagia Sophia on the historical peninsula of Sarayburnu, was built in the 6th century during the reign of Byzantine Emperor Justinian I. History The name of this subterranean structure derives from a large public square on the First Hill of Constantinople, the Stoa Basilica, beneath which it was originally constructed. Before being converted to a cistern, a great Basilica stood in its place, built between the 3rd and 4th centuries during the Early Roman Age as a commercial, legal and artistic centre. The basilica was reconstructed by Ilius after a fire in 476. Ancient texts indicated that the basilica contained gardens, surrounded by a colonnade and facing the Church of Hagia Sophia According to ancient historians, Emperor Constantine built a structure that was later rebuilt and enlarged by Emperor Justinian after the Nika riots of 532, which devastated the city. Historical texts claim that 7,000 slaves were involved in the construction of the cistern. The enlarged cistern provided a water filtration system for the Great Palace of Constantinople and other buildings on the First Hill, and continued to provide water to the Topkapı Palace after the Ottoman conquest in 1453 and into modern times. In media The cistern was used as a location for the 1963 James Bond film From Russia with Love. In the film, it is referred to as being constructed by the Emperor Constantine, with no reference to Justinian. Its location is a considerable distance from the Soviet (now Russian) consulate, which is located in Beyoğlu, the "newer" European section of Istanbul, on the other side of the Golden Horn. The finale of the 2009 film The International takes place in a fantasy amalgam of the Old City, depicting the Basilica Cistern as lying beneath the Sultan Ahmed Mosque, which, in the film, is directly adjacent to the Süleymaniye Mosque. In the 2011 video game, Assassin's Creed: Revelations, the player controlled character, Ezio Auditore, is given the chance to explore a section of this cistern in a memory sequence entitled The Yerebatan Cistern.

    https://www.gaudry.be > Photo > Galerie
    [15] 22/02/2012 - Dernière modification le 19/10/2019 La « grande cour des concubines et des épouses » (Kadın Efendiler Taşlığı / Cariye Taşlığı) a été construite à la même époque que la cour des eunuques, au milieu du xvie siècle. Restaurée après l'incendie de 1665, elle est la plus petite cour du harem. Entourée d'arcades, elle comporte un hammam (Cariye Hamamı), une fontaine de lavage, une blanchisserie, des dortoirs, l'appartement du chef de la famille et les appartements des hôtesses (Kalfalar Dairesi). Les trois appartements indépendants, qui ont vue sur la Corne d'Or, décorés de tuiles et avec cheminée, étaient les logements de la famille du sultan. Ces constructions couvraient le site de la cour à la fin du xvie siècle. À l'entrée du quartier de la sultane validé, des fresques murales de la fin du xviiie siècle, d'influence européenne, représentent des paysages. L'escalier dit des « quarante marches » (Kirkmerdiven) permet d'accéder à l'hôpital du harem (Harem Hastanesi), aux dortoirs des concubines, à la terrasse du harem et à ses jardins.

  • Palais de Topkapi - La sultane validé et ses accompagnatrices

    [16] 22/02/2012 - Dernière modification le 19/10/2019 Les « appartements de la sultane validé » (Valide Sultan Dairesi) constituent, avec les appartements du sultan, la plus grande et la plus importante section du harem. Ils ont été construits après le déménagement de la sultane validé, qui a quitté le vieux palais (Eski Saray) pour Topkapı à la fin du xvie siècle. Ces appartements ont dû être reconstruits après l'incendie de 1665, entre 1666 et 1668. Certaines pièces, comme la petite pièce de musique, ont été ajoutées au xviiie siècle. Seules deux pièces sont ouvertes au public : la salle à manger avec, dans la galerie supérieure, la salle de réception, et la chambre avec, derrière un treillis, une petite pièce pour la prière. Le rez-de-chaussée accueille les appartements des quartiers des concubines, tandis qu'à l'étage se trouvent les quartiers de la sultane validé et de ses accompagnatrices (kalfas). Un passage mène, à travers les bains de la sultane validé, aux quartiers du sultan. Ces pièces sont toutes recouvertes de tuiles bleu-blanc et jaune-vert à motifs floraux, ainsi que de porcelaine d'İznik du xviie siècle. Le panneau représentant la Mecque, signé d'Osman İznikli Mehmetoğlu, constitue une innovation de style pour la porcelaine d'İznik. Les peintures panoramiques des salles supérieures sont de style européen occidental des xviiie et xixe siècles. Au-dessus des quartiers de la sultane validé se trouvent les appartements de Mihirisah, de style rococo. Le passage en direction des bains donne accès à l'appartement d'Abdülhamid Ier. À proximité se trouve la chambre d'amour de Selim III, construite en 1790. Un corridor étroit relie cette pièce au pavillon d'Osman III daté de 1754.

  • Sultan Ahmet Camii
    https://www.gaudry.be > Photo > Galerie
    [17] 23/02/2012 - Dernière modification le 10/11/2019 La Mosquée bleue, mosquée du sultan Ahmet ou mosquée Sultanahmet (en turc Sultan Ahmet Camii ou Sultanahmet Camii) est l'une des mosquées historiques d'Istanbul. Elle est notamment connue pour les céramiques à dominante bleue qui ornent les murs intérieurs, et lui ont valu son nom en Europe. Elle fut un point de départ du pèlerinage à La Mecque et a le privilège de comporter six minarets : la Mosquée sacrée de La Mecque en comptait autant à l'époque, mais en a depuis reçu un septième. Les coupoles sont soutenues par quatre piliers massifs qui rappellent ceux de la mosquée Selimiye à Edirne, un autre chef-d'œuvre de Sinan. Il est évident que Sedefhar Mehmet Ağa a été timoré en prenant cette marge de sécurité exagérée, en dégradant les proportions élégantes de la coupole par leur taille oppressive. Ces « pieds d'éléphants » sont composés de multiples rainures de marbre convexes à leur base, tandis que la moitié supérieure est peinte, séparée de la base par une bande inscrite avec des mots dorés. À ses niveaux inférieurs et à chaque quai, l'intérieur de la mosquée est bordée de plus de 20 000 carreaux de céramique artisanale, faite à Iznik (l'ancienne Nicée) dans plus de cinquante modèles différents. Les carreaux aux niveaux inférieurs sont de conception traditionnelle, tandis qu'au niveau de la galerie leur design devient flamboyant avec des images de fleurs, de fruits et de cyprès. Plus de 20 000 carreaux ont été fabriqués sous la supervision du maître potier d'Iznik Kaşıcı Hasan, et Mustafa Mersin Efendi de Avanos (Cappadoce). Toutefois, le prix des constructeurs pour les carreaux était fixé par décret du sultan, tandis que les prix des carrelages a augmenté au fil du temps. En conséquence, les carreaux utilisés plus tard dans la construction étaient de moindre qualité, leurs couleurs ont pâli et changé (le rouge au brun, le vert au bleu, blanc tacheté) et la glaçure s'est émoussée. Les tuiles sur le mur du balcon arrière sont des carreaux recyclés du harem du palais de Topkapı, quand il a été endommagé par un incendie en 1574. Les niveaux supérieurs de l'intérieur sont dominés par la peinture bleue, mais de mauvaise qualité. Plus de 200 vitraux avec des motifs complexes laissent passer la lumière naturelle, aujourd'hui aidée par des lustres. Sur les lustres, des œufs d'autruche étaient destinés à éviter les toiles d'araignées dans la mosquée en repoussant les araignées. Les décorations comprennent des versets du Coran, dont beaucoup ont été faits par Seyyid Kasim Gubari, considéré comme le plus grand calligraphe de son temps. Les sols sont recouverts de tapis, qui sont donnés par des fidèles et sont régulièrement remplacés dès qu'ils sont usés. Les nombreuses fenêtres spacieuses confèrent une impression d'espace. Les croisées au niveau du sol sont décorées avec l'Opus sectile. Chaque exèdre a cinq fenêtres, dont certaines sont aveugles. Chaque demi-coupole possède 14 fenêtres et le dôme central 28 (dont quatre sont aveugles). Le verre de couleur pour les fenêtres a été un don de la Seigneurie de Venise au sultan. La plupart de ces vitraux colorés ont désormais été remplacés par des versions modernes sans quasiment aucune valeur artistique. L'élément le plus important dans l'intérieur de la mosquée est le mihrab, qui est fait de marbre finement sculpté, avec un créneau de stalactites et un panneau double d'inscriptions au-dessus. Les murs adjacents sont recouverts de carreaux de céramique, mais les nombreuses fenêtres autour leur donnent une apparence moins spectaculaire. À la droite du mihrab est le minbar richement décoré, ou pupitre, où l'imam se trouve quand il prononce son sermon au moment de la prière de midi le vendredi ou les jours saints. La mosquée a été conçue de sorte que même quand elle est très encombrée, tout le monde à la mosquée peut voir et entendre l'imam. Le kiosque royal est situé à l'angle sud-est, il comprend une plate-forme, une loggia et deux petites salles. Il donne accès à la loge royale dans le sud-est de la galerie supérieure de la mosquée. Ces chambres sont devenues le siège du grand vizir pendant la répression du corps rebelle janissaire en 1826. La loge royale (Hünkâr Mahfil) est soutenue par dix colonnes de marbre. Elle a ses propres mihrabs, qui étaient autrefois ornés d'un jade rose et doré et une centaine de corans sur les lutrins incrustés et dorés. Le grand nombre de lampes qui éclairent l'intérieur étaient autrefois couvertes d'or et de pierres précieuses. Parmi les bols en verre on pouvait trouver des œufs d'autruche et des boules de cristal. Toutes ces décorations ont été enlevées ou pillées pour les musées. Les grandes tablettes sur les murs sont gravées avec les noms des califes et des versets du Coran, à l'origine par le grand calligraphe du xviie siècle Ametli Kasım Gubarım, mais ils ont souvent été restaurés.

  • Amadouvier - Fomes fomentarius
    https://www.gaudry.be > Photo > Galerie
    [20] 04/08/2012 - Dernière modification le 04/11/2019 Fomes fomentarius (commonly known as the tinder fungus, false tinder fungus, hoof fungus, tinder conk, tinder polypore or ice man fungus) is a species of fungal plant pathogen found in Europe, Asia, Africa and North America. The species produces very large polypore fruit bodies which are shaped like a horse's hoof and vary in colour from a silvery grey to almost black, though they are normally brown. It grows on the side of various species of tree, which it infects through broken bark, causing rot. The species typically continues to live on trees long after they have died, changing from a parasite to a decomposer. Though inedible, F. fomentarius has traditionally seen use as the main ingredient of amadou, a material used primarily as tinder, but also used to make clothing and other items. The 5,000-year-old Ötzi the Iceman carried four pieces of F. fomentarius, concluded to be for use as tinder. It also has medicinal and other uses. The species is both a pest and useful in timber production. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

  • Aero L-29 Delfin
    https://www.gaudry.be > Photo > Galerie
    [21] 02/11/2019 - Dernière modification le 11/11/2019 The Aero L-29 Delfín (English: Dolphin, NATO reporting name: Maya) is a military jet trainer aircraft that became the standard jet trainer for the air forces of Warsaw Pact nations in the 1960s. It was Czechoslovakia's first locally designed and built jet aircraft. The Delfin served in basic, intermediate and weapons training roles. For this latter mission, they were equipped with hardpoints to carry gunpods, bombs or rockets, and thus armed, Egyptian L-29s were sent into combat against Israeli tanks during the Yom Kippur War. The L-29 was supplanted in the inventory of many of its operators by the Aero L-39 Albatros. More than 2,000 L-29s were supplied to the Soviet Air Force, acquiring the NATO reporting name "Maya." L-29's, along with the newer L-39,were used extensively in ground attack missions in the Nagorno-Karabakh War by Azeri forces. At least 14 were shot down by Armenian air-defences. As a trainer, the L-29 enabled air forces to adopt an "all-through" training on jet aircraft, replacing earlier piston-engined types. On July 16, 1975, a Czechoslovak Air Force L-29 shot down a Polish civilian biplane piloted by Dionizy Bielański that was attempting to defect to the West. On October 2, 2007, an unmodified L-29 was used for the world’s first jet flight powered solely by 100% biodiesel fuel. Pilots Carol Sugars and Douglas Rodante flew their Delphin Jet from Stead Airport, Reno, Nevada to Leesburg International Airport, Leesburg, Florida in order to promote environmentally friendly fuels in aviation. Between September 10–14, 2008, two L-29s took first and second at the Reno Air Races. Both L-29s consistently posted laps at or above 500 miles per hour. Former Astronaut Curt Brown took first in "Viper," followed by Red Bull Racer Mike Mangold in "Euroburner." Russia says it destroyed 2 Georgian L-29s during the 2008 South Ossetia war.

  • Dohány utcai zsinagóga

    [22] 04/08/2013 - Dernière modification le 07/11/2019 Dohány Street Synagogue The Dohány Street Synagogue (Hungarian: Dohány utcai zsinagóga/nagy zsinagóga, Hebrew: בית הכנסת הגדול של בודפשט‎ bet hakneset hagadol šel budapešt), also known as The Great Synagogue or Tabakgasse Synagogue, is located in Erzsébetváros, the 7th district of Budapest. It is the largest synagogue in Europe and the fifth largest in the world. It seats 3,000 people and is a centre of Neolog Judaism. The synagogue was built between 1854 and 1859 in the Moorish Revival style, with the decoration based chiefly on Islamic models from North Africa and medieval Spain (the Alhambra). The synagogue's Viennese architect, Ludwig Förster, believed that no distinctively Jewish architecture could be identified, and thus chose "architectural forms that have been used by oriental ethnic groups that are related to the Israelite people, and in particular the Arabs". The interior design is partly by Frigyes Feszl. The Dohány Street Synagogue complex consists of the Great Synagogue, the Heroes' Temple, the graveyard, the Holocaust memorial and the Jewish Museum, which was built on the site on which Theodore Herzl's house of birth once stood. Dohány Street itself, a leafy street in the city center, carries strong Holocaust connotations as it constituted the border of the Budapest Ghetto. History Built in a residential area between 1854-1859 by the Neolog Jewish community of Pest according to the plans of Ludwig Förster, the monumental synagogue has a capacity of 2,964 seats (1,492 for men and 1,472 in the women's galleries) making it the largest in Europe and one of the largest working synagogue in the World, after the Belz Great Synagogue and the Beit Midrash of Ger in Jerusalem, the Breslov Uman Synagogue in Uman, Ukraine, Temple Emanu-el in New York City, and the Yetev Lev D'Satmar synagogue in New York City. The consecration of the synagogue took place on 6 September 1859. The synagogue was bombed by the Hungarian pro-Nazi Arrow Cross Party on 3 February 1939. Used as a base for German Radio and also as a stable during World War II, the building suffered some severe damage from aerial raids during the Nazi Occupation but especially during the Siege of Budapest. During the Communist era the damaged structure became again a prayer house for the much-diminished Jewish community. Its restoration started in 1991 and ended in 1998. The restoration was financed by the state and by private donations. Exterior The building is 75 metres (246 ft) long and 27 metres (89 ft) wide. The style of the Dohány Street Synagogue is Moorish but its design also features a mixture of Byzantine, Romantic and Gothic elements. Two onion-shaped domes sit on the twin octogonal towers at 43 metres (141 ft) height. A rose stained-glass window sits over the main entrance. Similarly to basilicas, the building consists of three spacious richly decorated aisles, two balconies and, unusually, an organ. Its ark contains various torah scrolls taken from other synagogues destroyed during the Holocaust. The Central Synagogue in Manhattan, New York City is a near-exact copy of the Dohány Street Synagogue.

Interior The torah-ark and the internal frescoes made of colored and golden geometric shapes are the works of the famous Hungarian romantic architect Frigyes Feszl. A single-span cast iron supports the 12-metre-wide (39 ft) nave. The seats on the ground-floor are for men, while the upper gallery, supported by steel ornamented poles, has seats for women. Franz Liszt and Camille Saint-Saëns played the original 5,000 pipe organ built in 1859. A new mechanical organ with 63 voices and 4 manuals was built in 1996 by the German firm Jehmlich Orgelbau Dresden GmbH. One of the most daring concerts in the Synagogue's history was in 2002, played by the legendary organ virtuoso Xaver Varnus. Four hours before the concert even standing places could hardly be found in the Synagogue, and 7,200 people were sitting and standing to listen to the legendary improvisor’s fiendish virtuosity.

It was built between 1896 and 1908 as part of the Millennial Exhibition which celebrated the 1000 years of Hungary since the Hungarian Conquest of the Carpathian Basin in 895. The castle was designed by Ignác Alpár to feature copies of several landmark buildings from different parts the Kingdom of Hungary, especially the Hunyad Castle in Transylvania (now in Romania). As the castle contains parts of buildings from various time periods, it displays different architectural styles: Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque. Originally it was made from cardboard and wood, but it became so popular that it was rebuilt from stone and brick between 1904 and 1908. Today it houses the Agricultural Museum of Hungary, the biggest agricultural museum in Europe. The statue of Anonymus is also displayed in the castle court. Anonymus lived in the 12th century (his true identity is unknown, but he was a notary of Béla III of Hungary), who wrote the chronicle Gesta Hungarorum (Deeds of the Hungarians). The castle also contains a statue of Béla Lugosi. Source: Wikipedia

Its water is supplied by two thermal springs, their temperature is 74 °C (165 °F) and 77 °C (171 °F), respectively. Components of the thermal water include sulphate, calcium, magnesium, bicarbonate and a significant amount of fluoride acid and metaboric acid. Medical indications are on degenerative joint illnesses, chronic and sub-acute joint inflammations, as well as orthopaedic and traumatological post-treatments. History The bath can be found in the City Park, and was built in 1913 in Neo-baroque style to the design of Győző Czigler. The construction of the bath began on 7 May 1909. Designed by architect Eugene Schmitterer, The bath, named in the news as the Artesian spa, opened on 16 June 1913. The name of bath had been Széchenyi spa. The pool construction cost approximately 3.9 million Austro-Hungarian korona. The built-up area was 6,220 square meter. The attendance of spa was in excess of 200,000 people in 1913. (This number was already 890,507 in 1919). At that time it had private baths, separate men and women steam-bath sections, and different men / women "public baths". The complex was expanded in 1927, and it still has 3 outdoor and 15 indoor pools. After its expansion, the thermal artesian well could not fulfill its purpose, so a new well was drilled.

    https://www.gaudry.be > Photo > Galerie
    [28] 05/08/2013 - Dernière modification le 31/10/2019 Hungarian State Opera House The Hungarian State Opera House (Hungarian: Magyar Állami Operaház) is a neo-Renaissance opera house located in central Budapest, on Andrássy út. It is home to the Budapest Opera Ball, a society event dating back to 1886. Before the closure of "Népszínház" in Budapest, it was the second largest opera building in Budapest. Today it is the largest Opera building in Budapest and Hungary. History Designed by Miklós Ybl, a major figure of 19th century Hungarian architecture, the construction lasted from 1875 to 1884 and was funded by the city of Budapest and by Emperor Franz Joseph of Austria-Hungary. The Hungarian Royal Opera House (as it was known then) opened to the public on the September 27, 1884. Many important artists were guests here including Gustav Mahler the composer who was director in Budapest from 1887 to 1891 and Otto Klemperer who was music director for three years from 1947 to 1950. In the 1970s the state of the building prompted the Hungarian State to order a major renovation which eventually began in 1980 and lasted till 1984. The reopening was held exactly 100 years after the original opening, on the September 27, 1984. Overview It is a richly-decorated building and is considered one of the architect's masterpieces. It was built in neo-Renaissance style, with elements of Baroque. Ornamentation includes paintings and sculptures by leading figures of Hungarian art including Bertalan Székely, Mór Than and Károly Lotz. Although in size and capacity it is not among the greatest, in beauty and the quality of acoustics the Budapest Opera House is considered to be amongst the finest opera houses in the world. The auditorium holds 1261 seats. It is horseshoe shaped and – according to measurements done in the 1970s by a group of international engineers – has the third best acoustics in Europe after La Scala in Milan and the Palais Garnier in Paris. Although many opera houses have been built since, the Budapest Opera House is still among the best in terms of the acoustics. In front of the building are statues of Ferenc Erkel and Franz Liszt. Liszt is the best known Hungarian composer. Erkel composed the Hungarian national anthem, and was the first music director of the Opera House; he was also founder of the Budapest Philharmonic Orchestra. Each year the season lasts from September to the end of June and besides opera performances the Opera House is home to the Hungarian National Ballet. The secondary building of the Hungarian State Opera is Erkel theatre. It is a much larger building that also hosts opera and ballet performances during the opera season. There are guided tours in the building in six languages (English, German, Spanish, French, Italian and Hungarian) almost every day. Features Facade: The decoration of the symmetrical façade follows a musical theme. In niches on either side of the main entrance there are figures of two of Hungary's most prominent composers, Ferenc Erkel and Franz Liszt. Both were sculpted by Alajos Stróbl. Murals: The vaulted ceiling of the foyer is covered in magnificent murals by Bertalan Székely and Mór Than. They depict the nine Muses. Foyer: The foyer, with its marble columns, gilded vaulted ceiling, murals and chandeliers, gives the State Opera House a feeling of opulence and grandeur. Main Entrance: Wrought-iron lamps illuminate the wide stone staircase and the main entrance. Main Staircase: Going to the opera was a great social occasion in the 19th century. A vast, sweeping staircase was an important element of the opera house as it allowed ladies to show off their new gowns. Interior, Hungarian State Opera House Chandelier: The mail hall is decorated with a bronze chandelier the weighs 3050 kg! It illuminates a magnificent fresco by Károly Lotz, of the Greek gods on Olympus. Central Stage: This proscenium arch stage employed the most modern technology of the time.

It lies in Lajos Kossuth Square, on the bank of the Danube. It is currently the largest building in Hungary and still the tallest building in Budapest. History Budapest was united from three cities in 1873 and seven years later the diet resolved to establish a new, representative Parliament Building, expressing the sovereignty of the nation. An international competition was held, and Imre Steindl emerged as the victor; the plans of two other competitors were later also realized in the form of the Ethnographical Museum and the Hungarian Ministry of Agriculture, both of which face the Parliament Building. Construction from the winning plan was started in 1885 and the building was inaugurated on the 1000th anniversary of the country in 1896, and completed in 1904. (The architect of the building went blind before its completion.) About one thousand people were involved in construction, during which 40 million bricks, half a million precious stones and 40 kilograms (88 lb) of gold were used. After World War II the diet became single-chambered and today the government uses only a small portion of the building. During the communist regime a red star perched on the top of the dome, but was removed in 1990. Mátyás Szűrös declared the Hungarian Republic from the balcony facing Lajos Kossuth Square on 23 October 1989.

    [32] 05/08/2013 - Dernière modification le 31/10/2019 Hungarian Parliament Building The Hungarian Parliament Building (Hungarian: Országház, which translates to House of the Country or House of the Nation) is the seat of the National Assembly of Hungary, one of Europe's oldest legislative buildings, a notable landmark of Hungary and a popular tourist destination of Budapest. It lies in Lajos Kossuth Square, on the bank of the Danube. It is currently the largest building in Hungary and still the tallest building in Budapest. History Budapest was united from three cities in 1873 and seven years later the diet resolved to establish a new, representative Parliament Building, expressing the sovereignty of the nation. An international competition was held, and Imre Steindl emerged as the victor; the plans of two other competitors were later also realized in the form of the Ethnographical Museum and the Hungarian Ministry of Agriculture, both of which face the Parliament Building. Construction from the winning plan was started in 1885 and the building was inaugurated on the 1000th anniversary of the country in 1896, and completed in 1904. (The architect of the building went blind before its completion.) About one thousand people were involved in construction, during which 40 million bricks, half a million precious stones and 40 kilograms (88 lb) of gold were used. After World War II the diet became single-chambered and today the government uses only a small portion of the building. During the communist regime a red star perched on the top of the dome, but was removed in 1990. Mátyás Szűrös declared the Hungarian Republic from the balcony facing Lajos Kossuth Square on 23 October 1989. Source: Wikipedia

    [34] 11/11/2019 - Dernière modification le 16/11/2019 Le complexe était un hôpital militaire de l'armée impériale allemande depuis le début de la Première Guerre mondiale. En Octobre et Novembre 1916, Adolf Hitler y a été soigné après avoir été blessé à la jambe lors de la bataille de la Somme. En 1945, le lieu a été occupée par les forces de l'Armée rouge, et le complexe est resté un hôpital militaire soviétique jusqu'en 1995, bien après la réunification allemande. Après le retrait soviétique, des tentatives ont été lancées sans grand succès pour privatiser le complexe. Certaines sections de l'hôpital demeurent opérationnelles comme un centre de réadaptation neurologique et un centre de recherche et de soins pour les victimes de la maladie de Parkinson. Le reste, y compris la chirurgie, l'hôpital psychiatrique, et un champ de tir, a été abandonné en 2000. En 2007, la zone environnante ressemblait à une ville fantôme. C'est sur ce lieu qu'ont été tournées des scènes de films comme Le Pianiste en 2002, ou encore le clip de Rammstein "Mein Herz de brennt" et "Valkyrie" en 2008.
