Abstract (in English)

Hungarian industry that developed in the second third of the 19th century and then the socialist large-scale industry produced innovations, products and industrial sites and tows of international standard. While the result of the changing between capitalist and socialist era in the first third of the 20th century seems not to be damaging from the industrial heritage point of view, the economic and political circumstances of the past almost twenty-five years started an extremely quick and mass destruction in this, legally not protected area. This means the destruction of the specific buildings, traditional industrial sites, towns and regions characteristic of the manufacturing industry that developed in our country as well in the 19th century, and also that the 20th century buildings of the socialist large-scale industry.
