The Hungarian government submitted a bill to Parliament yesterday that will not allow retailers operating in World Heritage sites to be exempt from Sunday opening hour restrictions, Hungarian news agency MTI reported today.

MTI said that the decision to extend the restrictions was made “on the basis of principle” after receiving feedback.

Two World Heritages sites are in question in Budapest: the Banks of the Danube and the Buda Castle District, with an area of 451 hectares, and Andrássy út as well as the metro, with a property area of 58 hectares and a buffer zone of 240 hectares, data from UNESCO show.
