THE ELDORADO PÉCS
According to myth, Eldorado is a magical city in the northern part of South America, located in the mountains of today’s Colombia, that was coveted by European conquistadors and treasure seekers.
The tales speak of a lost city where the houses are covered with golden roof, supported by golden walls, and even the streets are paved with gold. Legend has it that the Inca tribes fled to the golden city, where they bathed in pure gold powder, and lived in palaces made of gold. The city represents happiness, ease and welfare. This is Eldorado. At least these are the thoughts that come to our mind first when we hear this name. However, is it really? The legend of Eldorado is a perpetual history about power, greed, money, and the devastation of a culture. If the City of Gold really existed, there must have been a reason why it was protected so strongly. The world probably was not, and still isn’t, prepared for the wonders that the rainforests of South America hides. The expedition of Eldorado is said to be one of the greatest treasure hunting attempts in history. Starting with the Mexican conquests of Hernan Cortés, the New World was pillaged for 20 years by the Spaniards. There were many who attempted to find the city, however none of them succeeded. The search for the ultimate treasure gave birth to one of the most famous legends of history.
This is the motto of our school as well: Eldorado is a true treasure, one that is valuable and undisputed. Choosing this name, we emphasise how profitable and important language is: it opens up opportunities at work, at school, as well as in private life.
