In this constantly expanding section we will write on the history of architecture, culture and society of the 13rd district, and more closely of Angyalföld.

If you have a photo you would willingly share, a topic you would willingly hear or eventually write about, you are welcome.

Transparency and browsing is helped by an ever evolving map.
