Of course some people find it terrifying to admire a skeleton, but I loved it. It was similar to the one standing in my biology class and I thought it was cute. Something interesting 😂😅😂

Purely for touristic display.

I'm very interested in the roman period, but this left me sad. When you walk uphill, you pass a salesman for honey. A small path on the right leads to this display. Opposite of the glass there are footprints painted on the ground for tourists to make a selfie (A SELFIE for crying out loud). When you see the picture, you have basically seen the tomb. Walking further uphill, passing by restaurants, local wine sellers and for-sale signs, you will find a very small church and a graveyard. For me, it felt underwhelming and disappointing.

I like that place and the story behind it. The way there is slightly hidden. It is on the right side when you go up the hill. Please have a look at the photos of other users. They have the view of the place where you should turn right.

Came this far to meet his death

In 1925 when a local vineyard owner was plowing its field found a brick grave and in it an intact skeleton. The grave is in Hévíz Egregy district, close to the beginning of Dombföldi Street, leading up to Egregy vineyards. In the grave at the right shoulder of the skeleton was a bronze fibula, also a belt buckle, an iron knife, and other small items. The rumor started to talk about gold coins and military honors as well. Now only the soldier would be able to tell what else did he has.
The grave is cut in a steep wall and the front of it open, covered by glass. Seen this unfortunate fellow who probably had scoliosis, I feel uncomfortable. To put someone on display, who was already resting, is indecent. Or at least these are my feelings. Before I left, I wished him “requiescat in pace.”
