Because of the birthday of the capital, full-time programs related to the anniversary of the unification of the city are waiting for those interested in the Castle Museum of the Budapest History Museum (BTM) on 20 November, MTI writes.
Today's Budapest was established on 17 November, 1873, uniting the cities of Pest, Buda and Óbuda. To commemorate the birthday, visitors can take part in station crafts, workshops related to contemporary fashion, architecture and urban planning, as well as learn about BTM's special artefacts such as the Polyphon jukebox or the printing machine used even before the unification - read the announcement of the organizers.
