Welcome to Derinkuyu, an underground city that once housed up to 20,000 people. In the Cappadocia region, famous for its cave dwellings and underground villages, Derinkuyu stands out for sheer size and complexity. Locals began digging in the 500s BCE. The city consists of over 600 doors, each of which can be closed from the inside. Each floor could be closed off as well. And just to make attacking completely impossible, the entire city was deliberately built without any logic. Its maze-like layout makes navigating the city nightmarish for unfamiliar invaders.
Armand Schönberger (Galgóc, 1885 - Budapest, 1974) was a Hungarian painter. The highlight of Schönberger artistry came in the late 1920s and early 1930s. This period was characterised not only by the creation of several masterpieces with an individual character, but also by many public appearances - Schönberger exhibited his work in several galleries in Hungary and abroad. In 1929, his work was exhibited in Nuremberg at an exhibition where contemporary Hungarian art was all the rage.
