When the train leaves

Dug from the archive, taken at the train station.
You must listen to this song by a famous hungarian singer, titled Mikor elindul a vonat (when the train leaves)

Szentes was the birthplace of Hungarian railcar operations; the two-axle
railcars built by GANZ were initially introduced here at the end of the 1920s
and passenger traffic on the surrounding lines has been served by railcars ever
since. Nowadays the local rolling stock mainly comprises 6341 railcars purchased
from Russia a few years ago.

Standing tall once again

Calvinist Great Church. See larger .
This structure is almost 200 years old (built from 1808 til 1825) ! In 2006 (or before?) restoration work started and this blog has been following the progress ever since. Despite the slow progress, I've enjoyed capturing scenes which were interesting to me and documenting them here.

The church is now back to it's purpose again. On sundays, you can see believers making their way to the church in their best suits giving it life again :)
