Farmers and craftsmen who lived in the outskirts of the town were

protected by city walls during the centuries. Taking a walk in Balfi,

Bécsi, Fövényverem or Halász streets, you can almost touch the

unique atmosphere of the former farmers’ district. The Bakery

Museum is located in the building which used to be the oldest bakery

in town. This function of the building is shown by the coat-ofarms

on the front of the house with lions breaking a piece of pretzel.

Between the years 1686-1970, the owners of the house were

bakers. After that, the City Council decided to open an exhibition in

the building, keeping the entire interior untouched.

The actual bakery can be found in the right wing of the house. In the

heating room there is a huge furnace while the baking room accommodates

a bread-bin, leavening cabinets and dough-baskets,

almost ready for immediate use. The former flour storeroom was

transformed into a sweet shop at the end of the 19th century, in

keeping with the needs of Sunday afternoon walkers. Because the

master was not allowed to leave the workshop for longer periods

even during the night shift, a small wooden chamber was separated

for him to take short naps. The room facing the street used to be

the bakery shop. It was later divided into two to form a sweet shop.

The interior of the sweet shop is original, too. The baker’s family

home can be accessed from the right side of the arched gateway. Its

furniture exhibits the typical interior design and way of life of craftsman

and farm families in the 19th century.
