WAR MEMORIAL PROJECTS | FOR THE HEROES

World War 1 was still going on when it was ordered that each munici-pality should set up a monument for the fallen ones. Originally, the monument would have been dedicated to the 31th Royal Hungarian Infantry Regiment and the 7th Royal Hungarian Artillery Regiment. It would have stood in the spacious Búzapiac (‘Grainmarket’) Square, as it seemed to be an ideal scene for spectacular military parades. The city council voted for the contribution to the budget, and the gypsum model of the future monument, along with the plans made by the architects from Pozsony (Pressburg / Bratislava, Slovakia), was exhibited in the town hall. Nevertheless, the plan did not win unanimous success, and due to the prolonging war, the costs were not available finally. The war memorial remained a mere plan.
