The intervention named Open Gates Programme was realized on the occasion of the Cultural Heritage Days which is held each year in September. In 2008 the gates of 10 Szentkirályi Street and in 2010 1 Horánszky Street were opened to the public.

In both cases thanks to the organization of the inhabitants the events resembled conferences where presentations, exhibitions as well as discussions helped the visitors to learn about the building’s history and the people living in it, and about their efforts to sustain the heritage site they live in.
