Some clarification:

Tihany Peninsula is entirely incorporated in the Balaton Uplands nominations. As it's obvious from the available documentationm that the former focus has been slightly changed, and the nomination concentrates on the vulcanic and postvulcanic hydrothermal acitvity in the region and the unique - or at least uniquely dense - geological formations of vulcanic origin. The other part of the cultural landscape - vineyards, 19th century villas - are somehow connected to this topic: specific forms of grape cultivation on vulcanic soil, beginnings of thermal bathins culture in Central Europe. The documentation still lacks the comparative analysis, it would be interesting to see what can they do to prove that this Cl in more unique than e.g. the Puys of France - that was Deferred upon the questionable OUV. Touristy it is but I do dot feel the that would find its place on the list.

Unfortunately it's available only in Hungarian:

The former Visegrad and Esztergom nominations were replaced by the joint Vsegrad-Esztergon one. In fact on the Hungarian site for some years it's visible, that the heritage administration wants to join these two. The new entry was mentionned as "Danube Bend CL" in the recent publications. But what I see now is - again - a slight change in the focus of the new nomination. from the historic monuments - castle ruins, churches - the emphasis was rather moved to the Royal Woods of Visegrad, that covered most of the Pilis mountains - the area between the former royal and episcopal seats. On one hand it seems to be rather reasonable - though there are "masterpieces of the Central European renaissance" in both places, that show the "unique infuence of Italian and French culture in the region", nothing really important survived the centuries of the Turkish wars. What we can see in Visegrad are humble ruins or modern reconstructions of once magnificent palaces, in Esztergom the result of a major reconstrucion in the late 19th century. Nothing special indeed. The new documentation now concentrates on the "continuous usage of the woods from the Middle Ages", the "survival of the medieval settlement patterns", the ruins of monasteries that were "the sprittula centres of the country", and the original and unique "royal road network through the woods" that - in fact only ots tracing - suvives until today and "deserves the highest level of protection". (Personal opinion: I know that wood, my children have been going there to summer camps for five years now. Nothing special. Despite its unquestionable natural beauty - OUV would be very hard to justify. )

Documentation (in Hungarian again):

http://www.vilagorokseg.hu/_upload/editor/KEM/Esztergom__Visegrad_KEM_webre.pdf

The bell-towers are the most promising, though this is not an easy case also. Even the Hungarian site mentions that the renomination was necessary because the "transnational nomination of wooden churches of the Carpathians with Romania, Ukraine, Slovakia and Poland has failed". I do not know the background story - but it shows that there were some kind of negotiations among the Central Eastern European states about a joint 'wooden churches" nomination. The result we know - we have now four distinct 'wooden chuches' sites, all serial, with no Hungarian participation. So this nomination is somewhat coerced - but the wooden bell towers - built apart form the stone or wooden church - are really chacateristic for this region - that is otherwise inseparable historically from Slovakia and Western Ukraine. The real question is, whether there is a place for a fifth on the list? (The above mentioned phrase on the site shows that the Hungarian authority does not seek the opportunity for an extension of an existing site. That would be much easier anyway.

Documentation in Hungarian:

The least entry, the "Rural Heitage Houses" nomination is quite hazy. There are hundreds of such houses in Hungary - practically in every other village - and the documentation does not mention even one of them, so we do not know exactly which would be included in the nomination paper which not. That means it's not more that a vague idea - as these houses, though they are under the supervision of hte heritage protection authority,, mostly are the properties of the local goverments and their upkeep, funding, staffing depends on the fianancial capacities, and willngness of the local govenments. I'm sure that this documentation will not be ready soon.

The Heritage Protection Authority and the govetment now concentrates on the limes nomination, and I'm sure that by the time it's not finished there will be neither money nor personel to begin the work on another dossier.

Thank you so much for this breakdown of the Hungarian tentative list. I've been to all the Hungarian sites as well as Visegrad and Esztergom. When it comes to art-historical importance, these two sites are extremely formative. They most likely are the first penetration of the "Renaissance" into Central Europe (and Germany). Unfortunately, as you said, not much is left, some reconstructions. However, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the Bakocz Chapel at Esztergom Basilica which is still intact and and while it is really truly important and beautiful - I can't see them adding the "Danube Bend" towns and landscape. It's definitely a nice day trip from Budapest, however.
