Vanished Budapest captured on video

In the first of a series called Vanished Budapest, Animatiqua Studio has used vintage images of lost landmarks collated by archive experts Fortepan to create a lively animated video set to music. Take a look!

A huge fan of Budapest, Animatiqua Studio founder András Kondacs wasn’t born here but his affection for the pre-war city saw him rifling through the Fortepan archives for images of lost landmarks – and create a video series from them.

Each animated frame is captioned, providing the name of the square, bridge or palace no longer with us. Look out for more videos in the near future!
