The construction regulation of the reconstruction of City Park was approved. Within the confines of the Liget Budapest Project several museums are to be moved here, and the park will be rehabilitated. The Liget Budapest Project is currently the biggest museum development investment in Europe.
The construction regulation of the reconstruction of Városliget (City Park) was approved by the Metropolitan Assembly of the 30th June. Besides the rehabilitation of the park within the confines of the Liget Budapest Project several museums (including fine art, folk art, photography, architecture and music-themed ones) are to be moved in the park. The Liget Budapest Project is currently the biggest museum development investment in Europe, and its aim is to wholly renew the green areas of City Park, and that the visitors get more cultural and entertainment opportunities. During the reconstruction much attention will be paid to the current green areas and plants in order that they won’t be harmed.
The Rate of the Green Areas Will Barely Decrease
Cultural and entertainment facilities currently available in City Park include the Budapest Zoo, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Vajdahunyad Castle and the Széchenyi Medicinal Bath. The buildings currently occupy 5.6 percent of the park; with the construction another 1.4 percent will be built-in, so the rate of the green areas will barely decrease. Several museums will be moved in the park: the New National Gallery - Ludwig Museum will be built between Erzsébet királyné útja and Városligeti fasor; and the House of Hungarian Music is to be erected on the area gained by knocking off out-of-use HUNGEXPO buildings. The Hungarian Museum of Architecture, the New Ethnographic Museum and the Museum of Photography will be built on the former Felvonulási tér.
The Circus and the Transport Museum Are Also to Be Reconstructed
The Transport Museum of Budapest will be reconstructed; its new square meterage is planned to be 3 thousand, and the new areas are to be located underground. The zoo is to be expanded on the area of the former amusement park. The Metropolitan Circus will be renewed and modernized to help it become a multifunctional cultural facility.
