The international cooperation of Hungarian and Slovakian researchers and institutions resulted in this trilingual (Hungarian, Slovak, English) excellent exhibition, which can be seen until January 18th, 2015. An illustrated and detailed (150 pages) bilingual catalogue compiled by Géza Pálffy, the leader of the research team is attached to the exhibition, as the first volume of the research project.
