Fascinating ‘Game of Thrones’-Style Video Commemorates Szeged’s Iconic Places

Ábrahám Vass 2019.07.02.

A recently published video presents the Hungarian sunshine capital‘s most iconic places and sights through a remake of the catchy opening theme of Game of Thrones.

Beginning in the Fő Fasor (Main Alley), the video goes through almost all the most important and iconic public places and sights of the Southern city, including Kárász street, the city’s pedestrian zone, the water tower in Széchenyi square, Szeged Dome, the National Museum, and the Gate of Heroes. Szeged’s bird-eye view, sliced in two by the Tisza river, without ignoring the socialist-type block of flats, is of course, also featured.

Reportedly, it took three months for its producer, Dániel Mészáros, to put together the video with a quality that apparently matches that of the series. And in case someone is here for the technical details, Mészáros used Cinema 4D, Octane Render, and DaVinci Resolve software.

“This animation was made as a tribute to the ‘Game of Thrones’ final season as well as for the birthday of my hometown,” he explains along with the video. Indeed, it was this year when Hungary’s third most populated city turned 300 years old, as it officially received its letters patent on 21 May 1719, along with its currently used coat of arms, from King Charles III.
