Abstract (in English)

In a new world, industrialization and environmental decline has called for more attention on existing values both of natural and of cultural-historic character. There is a start now for a world-wide recognition of the particular significance carried by monuments of past values. The general zeal of modern society is to achieve complex cultural heritage and environmental protection in harmony with economically necessary developments. In Europe and in Hungary as well, historic areas are almost always having live, organic connection with the existing modern township, though their function and role has considerably changed in time -the main issue here is to revive histotic areas by giving them up-to-date charàcteristics fitting new functional schemes for the rehabilitation work to be based on.
