The former stables of the legendary Hungarian race horse, Kincsem, is being revived in Göd as a community and cultural center.
Prior to the completion of the Budapest-Vác railway line, this building housed a horse station and tavern, and already served as a stable during the second half of the 19th century. It was home to the world famous miracle mare during the best years of her career. During the past decades, this locally protected building stood vacant, until the town of Göd had the opportunity to renew this property due to a subsidy received within the “EEA Financial Mechanism 2009 to 2014, Preservation and Renewal of Cultural and Natural Heritage” program.
As a result of this grand investment, a complex has been created which provides cultural and community functions, which can be one of the facilities laying the foundation for attracting tourists to this region.
A memorial site will be established in the renewed building that will commemorate the career of the miracle mare, in addition to an exhibition hall housing permanent and periodic exhibitions, one hall dedicated to ancient crafts, as well as a bicycle point serving tourists arriving by bicycles, and a café.
During the renewal of this deservingly reborn property, the original facade was reconstructed, and a multipurpose hall was also constructed that can be used for presentations, screenings, musical and dance programs.
The multifunctional implementation of this approximately 250 year old building meets today’s expectations. This way, the former stable has become suitable for receiving the most varied types of events.
This deservingly renewed building now deserves to once again become an important memorial of Hungarian equestrian culture and a venue for local community events.
