Just Outside Budapest


Let's return to Budapest and then set off in a south-westerly direction. We are in for a trip back in time … several thousand years! Visitors to Százhalombatta come upon Iron Age relics of the so-called Hallstadt culture. More than 100 tumuli preserve the remains of Iron Age dwellers who lived hereabouts. Huge Pyres were set ablaze on the Danube embankment in honour of those recently deceased, and their ashes were then hidden away in the mounds made to carefully planned designs. One such grave has survived in pristine condition, allowing archeologists to reconstruct accurately the burial customs of yore; deep in the tumulus visitors can trace (aided by sound and light effects) the course of a burial ceremony as performed 4000 years ago. What's more, it has been possible to reconstruct not only the burial ceremonies but the everyday life of Iron Age society too: House reconstructions, furnishings and clothing, and the very meals eaten in millennia past. The third Sunday in every month from May to September is given over to a Family Day when groups and individual visitors will find the archaeological park offering special family-oriented programmes.
