natural slate roofing

CUPA PIZARRAS natural slate returns Ice Rink of Budapest to its original splendor


CUPA natural slate now covers the City Park Ice Rink (Városligeti Műjégpálya) of Budapest.

The roof, with a total surfaced of 600 square meters, was covered by our CUPA R Selection natural slate, recovering its 19th-century look.

Our CUPA R Selection –Spitzwinkel model- was chosen for this project because of its standardized thickness, giving the roof a very even look and allowing an easy and fast installation process.

The huge Városligeti Műjégpálya roof was restored by our hungarian partners, Teto Horn Kf.


Opened in 1870, the Ice Rink of Budapest is the largest and one of the oldest outdoor skating rinks in Europe.

Located in the City Park of the Hungarian capital, between the Heroes' Square and the Vajdahunyad Castle, the Városligeti Műjégpálya went through a complete renovation between 2009 and 2011.

In summer months, the area is filled up with water to create a pond, used for boating, but also hosted several special events such as the Art on Lake Exhibition in 2011.

CUPA R Selection natural slate has helped Ice Rink of Budapest recover its original splendor. 

The skating area was expanded to 12,000 square metres and a standard ice hockey rink was set up as well. The skating rink was the home of the 2012 European Allround Speed Skating Championships.
