Hungary's northwestern bordertown Kőszeg inaugurated its newly renovated main square on Saint Geroge's day.
The project included the full renovation of the century-old facades at the Jurisics Square and the refurbishment of the municipality hall.
The works, part-financed by the EU, cost 668 million forints (EUR 2.24 million).
The town also celebrated on April 24, Saint George's day, the new shoots of the grapevine. Following the tradition, shoots are introduced to a Book of Vine Shoots by drawing every year since 1740.
Below are pictures of the town that once saw and defeated the besieging Turks lead by Suleiman the Magnificent in 1532.
