For 70 years no one knew what beauty lay forgotten in a secret hall of the Museum of Fine Arts, in Budapest, Hungary. They used this room for storage, and the unsuspecting public passed the locked doors for decades, not knowing about the decaying walls. The hall suffered further damage in WW2 and was closed ever since. Finally in 2016 a decision was made to restore the Romanesque Hall to its former glory. The renovations lasted for many years, and finally, in 2018 the Museum opened the doors of the long forgotten Romanesque Hall for the public. Geza Sarvari photographer was there to capture the beautiful details, the result of the dedicated work of dozens of restorers.
