The stolen diary of Attila

The stolen diary of Attila

There are two theories regarding the origin of the ’Buda’ name. The first says that it is a derivate of the Slavic word voda, meaning water. According to the second, it comes from the name of the brother of Attila, who was called ’Bléda’. It was Bléda who buried the diary of his Brother in the Buda hills in a small wooden box. The name of Attila was written on it with Hungarian ’rovásirás’. This was almost 800 years before one started building the Buda castle. It was found and is kept and guarded ever since between the thick walls of the Hungarian fortress. During Turkish rule it has been smuggled out by forefathers of the so called ’betyár’ villains.

The fortress of Buda

During an ‘interesting’ (or rather boring!?) lecture on the history of the castle district by the acknowledged art historian László Gyertyatartó the ancient diary of Attila – king of the Huns – unexpectedly disappears.

It turns out that a forbidden political organization, the betyár clan, leaded by ifj. Rózsa Sándor, snatched it away. The clan has a video message for the group.

Prepare for the ‘Betyár’ challenge!

The only way to get the invaluable diary back in the castle Museum is to find the claimed ransom during an exciting expedition alongside intriguing locations in the historical Buda castle district. Impossible challenges, moving encounters with figures from the past and unexpected turning points are the result. This journey through Hungarian history will test the commitment, creativity, andmor of the team(s).

Ifj. Rózsa Sándor and his helpers are however modern ’betyárok’. They can hear, and see everything what the teams say and do. Did they hide cameras everywhere!?

The guests will be divided in smaller teams and subsequently be confronted with unexpected ransom instructions. Instructions by sealed envelopes – hided in somewhere in the castle district – advertisements in the newspaper, by mobile phone and e-mail make the suspense complete.

The Stolen diary of Attila is an interactive tourist or fun building program for 15 to 300 participants. The concept can be planned as a day, afternoon or evening program.

Off course all participants receive a copy of the Diary of Attila, a logbook of life lessons, brought to us by the past, but still more than actual…
