    The complex of the hermits’ community in Majk where the monastery in the woods still exists, each cell-house with their fences and gardens are unique historic monuments of the Baroque style in both Hungary and the neighbouring countries made complete with many surviving parts of its natural environment. Only few fragments of the original monastery erected on Kahlenberg near Vienna have come down to us, much in the same way as there is hardly anything preserved of Landsee (Lánzsér, today: Burgenland). This convent building which had not been used for decades now was now appropriately facelifted thanks to financial support from the European Union acquired in 2009: by autumn 2014 construction and restoration works were completed, and the first exhibitions were also installed. Restoration was supported by comprehensive research work into related archives and former restorations, as well as by the thorough analysis of functions. Design work carried out with due care was matched by thoughtful contributions of restorers and handicraftsmen. Although the primary objective was to present and display the values of the period when the monastery still existed but some parts of the completed building are defined by relics of more recent utilizations.
