Christmas in Budapest

Winter is the most exciting, most enchanting of the seasons and I look forward to it year by year. The sparkling white snow makes even the dullest and plainest neighborhood spectacular and beautiful to look at, besides the captivating Castle area or Heroes Square in Budapest, covered with snow. Nothing can compare to the atmosphere before Christmas in Budapest. The city is illuminated by Christmas lights, and those famous Christmas markets are there to be enjoyed, not to mention the typical Christmas meals that attract people visiting Hungary during this festive season. read more

Everyone who is a little bit interested in American culture knows that Thanksgiving lands on the 4th Thursday of November. It is probably the second biggest holiday in the United States after Christmas, if not the biggest. It originated as a harvest festival to give thanks, especially for the abundance of food after the harvest and is marked by a great feast. Without boring you rigid with the details of its historical backgrounds I would like to share my feelings with you and what Thanksgiving celebration means to me after 20 years of working at an American law firm in Budapest. read more

Frida Kahlo Exhibition – Masterpieces from the Museo Dolores Olmedo, Mexico City at the Hungarian National Gallery,  Building C, ground floor

Probably the most defining and iconic female artist of the twentieth century, Frida Kahlo is the subject of an exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts – Hungarian National Gallery in the summer of 2018. Thanks to the kind generosity of the Museo Dolores Olmedo, Mexico City, and several other important Mexican collections, more than thirty paintings and other works by the artist are being brought on loan to Budapest. The selection – which not only features the artist’s hallmark self-portraits, but also includes such major works as her very first canvas, painted in 1927, as well as paintings and portraits inspired by the events in her life, works suffused with symbolism, drawings, and even photographs – offers a glimpse inside the evocative, yet physically and mentally tormented inner world of Frida Kahlo, and shows us the mythical reality that she experienced and recreated. read more

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo in Budapest

1024 683 Sylvia123

Cinco de Mayo is often mixed up with the Mexican National Holiday, the country’s “official” Independence Day, which is held on September 16, and is a bigger celebration than the widely known Cinco de Mayo. The origin of this holiday starts with a bittersweet victory won by a heroically defensive Mexican army led by General Ignacio Zaragoza over the outnumbered French troops on May, 5 1862 in the Battle of Puebla. Though the Mexicans lost the war against the French, the victory celebration remained and throughout the country people commemorate how the hero General Zaragoza defeated the expeditionary army of Louis Napoleon.
