On 10th May 2019 was held the ceremonial opening of the Cultplay interactive thematic park in Hurbanovo, as well as the competition for children within the framework of the project named “CULTPLAY - Interactive Thematic Parks - Innovative Use of Cultural Heritage” (SKHU/1601/1.1/209).
This project is implemented within the Interreg V-A Slovakia-Hungary Cooperation Programme, which is funded by the European Regional Development Fund. The main goal of creating the Cultplay interactive thematic park in Hurbanovo is to demonstrate a cultural heritage of Hungary, which is the Mining Museum of Oroszlány. Unlike the plans, due to the awful weather, the event took place in the local cultural center. The representatives of Municipality of Nové Zámky (project lead partner), and the representatives of Municipality of Hurbanovo (organizer) together with the representatives of the project partner cities: Komárno, Kolárovo, Šaľa, Svodín, Komárom, Tata, Oroszlány, Kisbér participated at the event.
The ceremonial speeches, presented by the Mayor of Hurbanovo and other invited guests, were followed by a cultural program of the local Árpád Feszty Elementary and Nursery School, where toddlers and pupils were presenting dance performances. After the local school’s program was held the skillful competition for children, which was organized and launched by an organization called “Center for Education and Talent Development” from Komárno. During the competition pupils of the local Árpád Feszty Elementary and Nursery School (Hurbanovo), Árpád Feszty Elementary School (Komárom), Gergely Czuczor Elementary School (Nové Zámky) and Mátyás Hunyadi Elementary School (Oroszlány) were competing with each other. Children measured their skills, abilities and creativity in many disciplines, as well as gained new knowledges in a quiz. After the competition, they were awarded by different kinds of prizes. Simultaneously with the competition, students and teachers of the Secondary Technical School of Commerce and Services from Komárno, prepared typical Hungarian and Slovak dishes that the participants and children could taste. As part of the program, there was an opportunity to try the students’ “hairdresser salon” services, too.
