View of musical clock at 12.15

The tunes of this unique piece of art by watchmaker Ferenc Csϊry could be first heard at the Open Air Festival in 1936. The music clock on the upper level of the building, opposite the main entrance of the Votive Church is a symbol of medieval universities.

Twice a day, at 12.15 and 17.45 it shows the school-leaving ceremony of the graduating students at the end of the academic year. Then the eminences of the university council and the graduating students walk around in front of the clock.

The basswood figures were carved by Jσzsef Kulai, whose models were famous Hungarian people, such as Kϊnσ Klιbersberg, Andrαs Dugonics, Kelemen Mikes, Sαndor Petőfi and Istvαn Vedres. The scene is accompanied by the melody of the well-known Hungarian student song “Ballag mαr a vιn diαk…” (The old student is saying farewell…). Besides, at every hour the clock plays the song “Szeged hνrφs vαros” (Szeged is a famous city) as a signal.
