Abstract (in English)

There are places in every town where people like to be: to come together, to talk to each other, to relax, or just to enjoy the atmosphere and the environment. Most of these places have long roots in the past and history. And of course it appears and adds much to the physical appearance of these places. These places may be streets, squares, surrounded by buildings, or buildings themselves, but popular places may be parks, boulevards, riverbanks or even bridges. It is wise to extend the life of these beloved places as people do not always like changes. It helps to strengthen local identity, to maintain and reutilize the built heritage and it also accords well with the ideology of sustainable development. In this respect there are many joyful phenomenon in Hungary. The creative ways of remodelling, reutilizing or revitalising different elements of the historic environment helps to regain the former liveliness of places in the settlements and to bring people again more closer to each other.
