Múzeumok Éjszakája 2012 ( Night of the Museums )

This year's first stop for us was The neolog Synagogue (1871) but currently functions as House of science and technology. You can also find copies of Michelangelo's fifteen statues here P1190320 P1190308 P1190317 P1190314 On our way to the next destination, we heard the choir from The Evangelic Church, so we paused a bit to listen to the beautiful concert. P1190323 Next destination was The Greek Orthodox church (1824 & 1829). Kecskemét used to be the Greek metropolis of the Danube-Tisza region. At the end of the 17th century Greek merchants settled in the town and they built this church between 1824 and 1829. Look at those wood carvings! P1190328 P1190325 Q&A at the Greek Orthodox Church. The atmosphere was very informal :) P1190330 Seating in the Greek Orthodox church is different from most churches that it is not set in rows but instead around the walls of the church. Visitors listening to the guardian of church. Last stop, and also my favourites of all, The Museum of Hungarian Naive Artists (1976). This place housed the largest collection of naive fine arts in Hungary. Mainly parents like to bring their children here.

Aside from the usual artifacts, Artist is exhibiting his work in one of the galleries until August 2012. His work is just fascinatingly vibrant!

P1190338 Obviously, there are many more museums in Kecskemét but we chose only 3 this time. We figured that this is an annual event that we'll visit others in the coming years. So, stay tune :)
