Winter pavilion is made to protect the statue at Vörösmarty Square
Posted by Budnews · Nov 29, 2019

Visitors of the Advent Fair will have a special sight to take a look at.

One of the main attractions of Vörösmarty Square - the square, where the main Christmas market is - is the huge statue of the Hungarian poet the square is named after. This beautiful sculpture received special protection this year: thanks to the Hello Wood team, an innovative structure is now protecting the statue, which also draws attention to our values.

The temporary pavilion placed around the Vörösmarty statue group evokes a classic look, protects the statue from the hardships of winter, and places the work in the center of the newly renovated Vörösmarty square. The cherry on top: the sculpture is illuminated with different colored lights, so it's truly beautiful.

András Huszár, managing director of Hello Wood revealed that these are temporary elements that protect the Vörösmarty statue, it will be dismantled at the end of the winter season, and could be reassembled next winter. The enormous curved structure is lightweight thanks to its ten-meter-high steel sheets, which are well-resistant to environmental influences, and the facade is made of transparent plexiglass to protect it from rain.

Be sure to check it out if you go to the Christmas fair or to Váci Street, because the statue has a completely different look with this beautiful protection.
