#361 - Paving art 2


Conitnuing on the subject of cobblestones ...
.
I suspect the paving on Bálint Kiss street are of the new(er) kind. Perhaps it's been refurbished along side with some other buildings works on-going on this street; but who cares! I simply love the oldie charm that this material exudes.
By the way, the street is yet to be fully accessible for traffic.
.
Okay, that's it! no more cobblestones, of course until I find the 3rd pavement..
.
Some history of this street:-
In Bálint Kiss Street (formerly Templom Street), which starts from behind the church, has several protected buildings (no. 1-12). The classicist Calvinist Parsonage built in 1836 (no. 2) gave shelter to Mihály Vörösmarty (a great Hungarian poet) during the years of the absolutism. Bálint Kiss (1772-1853), a Calvinist parson, whose name the street bears, was a polyhistor and a naturalist of his age. {source}
