Researchers in the Eötvös Loránd Research Network's (ELKH) Research Centre for the Humanities are working to collect and publish the letters of József Eötvös. The five to seven-volume series will allow those interested in the era to gain a better understanding of education policy in 1848, from nurseries to universities, and the various ideas about the relationship between church and state after 1867, highlighting the dilemmas and compromises of the liberal government of the time and the everyday life of the emerging Hungarian state administration.

A small street near Kálvin Square bears the name of Pál Gönczy, a writer on educational subjects and teacher at the Reformed Secondary School of Pest. In 1895 a small teacher training institute named after Gönczi's former ministerial superior, Count József Eötvös was opened here. At the time it was known as Csillag Street. Loránd Eötvös founded the College, and its first headteacher was Géza Bartoniek. They are the protagonists of the first 15 years of institution's history, but the small building where early students worked with their professors until 1911, was forgotten.

On this year's National Poetry Day, 11 April - the birthday of Attila József - the public, community poem readings, which have already become a tradition, were cancelled, and we could not even visit the statues of the greatest Hungarian poets to show our respect and gratitude. Thus, Pestbuda offers only a virtual walk between the works depicting our national greats in Budapest.
