Archery in Budapest
Archery in Budapest
Archery is very popular in Hungary. The first Hungarians came to Europe on horses and they used their special arches for fight. In the beginning they won many battles, but after they were not so successful. In Budapest there are several places where it is possible to practice this sport.
The arch is a dangerous weapon a Hungarian archer can shot as far as 600m (656 yards) with an arch. The arch is usually made from wood but sometimes they use horns of the cows and other materials as well. The Traditional Hungarian arches which they used when they arrived in the Karphathian basin is a backwards bended arches, which is very strong.
According to the Hungarian law dangerous tools (knives, arch, gun, gas spray, anything dangerous, etc) and weapons cannot bring to public places, cannot own there even in vehicles, just in disassembled condition or in closed container.
As I see there are not so much places, because of this reservation is perhaps needed.
