-->... lower part of the cellar labirinth with few light and steep stairs-it`s a bit creepy. It`s so surprising that from above you cannot even imagine,how many rooms are there beneath the square! These rooms will host in the future the 22 hungarian wine regions, so it will be transformed into a very special wine museum, but first all the square must be reconstructed: indeed, the reconstruction works began only in 5 years after the excavations, in 2004 (you can imagine the square in these 5 years, completely abbandoned, waiting that finally something would happen...) and finished only in may 2007. But this was only a half of the whole western Szent György square. Another, the central part of the square is still in ruins. It will be complete only in 2010-2011: the works begin only in 2008 (if everything goes fine).
Note: this complex can be visited only from 2008. I could see it thanks to the days of the cultural heritage on the 15th of september 2007.
