Summary of project results


The project supported infrastructure and content development related to the cave homes and their environment in Egerszalók. Content development related to the infrastructure development part of the project involved the establishment of several community and cultural functions with the following social impacts: stronger local identity, social responsibility and community cohesion, deeper integration of heritage values, higher awareness of the importance of local built heritage among visitors. The project had the comprehensive aim to preserve, maintain and restore the environment of built heritage and present its original function and operation in an engaging way. Through this, the project promoter restored and made accessible to the public 218.50 sqms of area with cultural functions, preserved and presented the values of built heritage and its natural environment related to traditional rural lifestyle, environmentally conscious area use and landscape management in a sustainable way and with the involvement of local stakeholders. They started to demonstrate traditional rural crafts and make development results available and accessible to the general public and present them in an engaging way. The purchase of the tools for community playgrounds (yurta tent, furnace), of folk playground facilities, of the facilities at the reception park, of the fairground caves were performed for this reason. A 10-minute 3D movie showing the everyday lives of caves and the history of cave dwellings was also created.
