Plans and preparation

It is usually an eventless period of the year, but recently we have a lot going on.

The warning signs we had planted around the ruins are important due to the growing numbers of hikers and tourists coming to Szadvar. Unfortunately, these signs wear down quickly. So far we could not find a more permanent weather-proof solution, so we have to replace them every other year. This can be done at this time, when other activities can’t. Of course, the castle is hiding in the fog and covered by snow. It has a completely different atmosphere this time. Please see the attached photos (by Tamas Grecmajer, Janos Dobos).

Our next event, the Save the Castle days (March 16-17th) is under preparation now. The plan is to work on the spots of the castle which will most probably be examined during the archeology week in the summer (July 30th – August 4th). We will clean the area of the weeds and bushes and collect the loose stones from the areas and pile them.

It gets harder and harder to find volunteers to come to far reaches of the country and work hard to save the ruins of Szadvar. But we have some positive examples, e.g. there are students coming regularly from a high school at the city of Gyor - which is very far from the castle. So now we are contacting other high schools in the country, mostly from the region of Szadvar and try to make the teachers and the young people aware that Szadvar is there and we can still save it for the future, for them.

The European Union declared 2018 the ‘European Year of Cultural Heritage’. We have submitted our 11th archeology week in the summer as a part of the events. You can find that and other information on this page: https://koee2018.kormany.hu/programmes

We are also updating our publications to re-issue them. It is also essential that we can show the achievements and the results of the hard work and the help we received from our volunteers.

And from You.

Thank you again for your help!
