Optional excursion 21 June

 

All day long trip to Herend and Lake Balaton

Herend and the pearls of Lake Balaton: Balatonfüred and Tihany

 

Departure: 7.30

 

Herend

 

   

The first stop of our trip is the world famous Herend Porcelain Manufactury, where you can not only get acquainted with the mysteries of porcelain-making, but rather take a painting brush and your own creativity can be also tested. Visitors can admire the Porcelanium’s permanent collections and the periodic exhibition which present the history of the manufacture. After the visit in the world of porcelain, you will have time to shop in the “Viktória” brand shop and enjoy the hospitality of Apicius Café. More information: http://herend.com/

After a traditional Hungarian lunch, we will visit the most popular town of Balaton called Balatonfüred within a short walk to the port. Balatonfüred’s countless cultural value and a range of programs have made this town one of the most appealing tourist destination. Following the short walk, we take the ship to take a closer look at the “Hungarian sea”. More information: https://balatonfured.hu/

 

Tihany

After the half hour boat trip we arrive to the jewel of the Tihany Peninsula which is definitely the most beautiful town of Hungary. It is known for such specialities like the Echo of Tihany, the Ancient Village, Hermits’ homes and the Benedictine Abbey of Tihany. The peninsula’s main attraction is the almost 1000 year-old Benedictine Abbey with the decorated baroque church, the under croft from 11th century and the crypt of I. András. The monastic absence makes the Abbey Museum’s unforgettable exhibition even more special. The Lapidary is one of the special values of the museum, but there are usually periodic showings about church art and fine art. Furthermore, another monument of the building is that the last Hungarian Royal couple, king IV. Károly and his wife queen Zita spent their last days here, between 26 and 31 October 1921, before they were banished to Madeira island. The rooms which were used by the royal couple can be viewed as a part of the museum. The renovated baroque chorus and sacristy are in the Abbey Museum. The carved equipment and gallery of the church were made by Sebestyén Stuhlhof (1723-1779) and are also shown during the trip.

The monk homes are interesting sights too. In the eastern slope of Óvár hill, Greek Orthodox hermits hollowed out their cells, a chapel and a dining room from the rocks in the 11th -14th century. This is the only hermits' place which is relatively well-preserved in the Carpathian Basin and even in Central Europe. After the visit of the Abbey and the Museum visitors will have free time to walk in the Ancient Village and with little luck participate in the lavender flower festival.

Topic of the presentation

The development of IT technology has already reached agriculture. Nowadays we have methods that we have not dreamed about before. In our century, conservation of natural resources, environmental protection, sustainable agriculture and rural development are inseparable from each other. These tasks are increasingly appreciating and have national security significance. According to studies, the needs for food are growing continuously. Expected by 2050 the world’s agriculture has to solve more than 9 billion people feeding. According to some prognosis the level of global meat consumption will rise with 40% by 2030. This requires the further growing of today’s production level. Think about it how stressful it is for the soil and environment. Hungary’s agriculture’s success depends on how it can adapt to the changing conditions and fit to the new challenges. The digitalization of agriculture, latest computing technology procedures and precision farming are indispensable and have to apply in the widest way. Computer-driven agricultural machineries can help farmers to compete with the advanced farms and produce better, more economically and reliably. It is no exaggeration to say that the hungarian agriculture has arrived to an age limit.

Topic of the presentation

Agriculture in the artificial intelligence age in terms of sustainability?
Challenges in education and advisory activity

When analysing of intensive digitalisation progress in agriculture, it should not be overlooked that many unmanned systems that are expected to be introduced in less than a decade will result in a number of current jobs being lost. It is true that they are new, but their number, the ratio to the current situation will be very small. Most of today's teenagers will work in a workplace that does not exist today, and we do not even know its name. At the same time, the conditions creating unmanned crop production are getting more and more developed. How can we prepare for this challenge? Certainly farmers must be better involved in further training than ever before. It is very important to realize that, in addition to technical information technology, biological knowledge has to be deepened.

Digitalis agriculture allows us to increase production intensity so that sustainability is maintained. Earlier, intensification and sustainability were opposite concepts.

There are seven steps to the decision- making process: 1) Identify the problem or opportunity, 2) Identify the alternative solution, 3) Collect all data and information, 4) Analyse the alternatives and make a decision, 5) Implement the decision, 6) Monitor the results of the decision, 7) Accept responsibility for the decision. The basic question is what kind of tasks we can perform in the decision-making process and what to leave for AI.

City Walking Tour in Mosonmagyaróvár

17.00-18.30

 

 

 

18 June 2018, Monday

 

All day long trip to Győr

Departure: 8.30

 

 

During the city walk interwoven with magical stories, visitors can meet with the most valuable pearls of Győr. Exploring the narrow alleys of the baroque downtown and beautiful spaces, listening to legends and search for the marks of the middle ages. We will visit the Cathedral and view the Szent László herm, which is the third most significant sacred relic of Hungary. Delight in the panorama of the city on the top of the Tower and with little luck we can visit the ceremonial hall of the city hall. It is a really rich programme with Győr’s 7 wonders and with a little surprise.

 

After the guided program, menu lunch with Fröccs (a.k.a the Spritzer) tasting, then free time for shopping and the own exploration of the city.

Fröccs, a.k.a the Spritzer is one of the most popular alcoholic drinks in Hungary. It is actually wine (mostly white wine) mixed with soda water.  And most importantly, not with mineral water as is often the case nowadays, but with good old fashioned soda water.

The origins of the drink: Both Hungarians and Austrians lay claim to the origin of the fröccs, but since soda water, one of its key ingredients, and the soda bottle was invented in Hungary, we can definitely say that fröccs is a Hungarian drink ;)   Source: https://www.5percangol.hu/archivum_2011/2011.03.09._-_egy_jo_froccs

 

Return to Mosonmagyaróvár at 16.00
