The Buda Castle was filled up with beer again, for the third time: the 3rd Budapest Beer Festival welcomed visitors on June 13-16, 2013 offering almost 200 different beers both from Hungary and abroad, including home brewed beauties. You could enjoy the „liquid bread” of Germany, Belgium, Holland, Czech, Slovakia, UK and Denmark – as well as ciders. The Balkan garden put a spell on you with gipsy music, guitars hanging in the air. Felt like trying banana or chocolate tasting beer? This was the time than ... while enjoying the true street carnival atmosphere, with concerts of Charlie, Ganxta Zolee, Mystery Gang, ZUP, Balkan Fanatik, the Joe Cocker, Doors and ZZ Top tribute bands. Check out our fantastic photos taken by Zsolt Vajna.

My name is María Elena, I was born and raised in Montevideo. When I was 19 years old I received a scholarship and came to Budapest to study. I earned my diploma at the viola teacher faculty of the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music, later also earned viola performer diploma at the music art faculty of the Debrecen University. Later I completed the literature translator training course at the Balassi Institute, simultaneously I started to teach Spanish language. Currently, I attend the Szeged University correspondence course, taking the faculty of Romanistics and Spanish. I teach Spanish at different languages schools in Budapest, I play viola in several symphonic and chamber orchestras on a monthly basis. In my free time I translate contemporary Hungarian literature into Spanish (several poetry books I translated were already published) and do aerobics.

PARK Opened the Summer Season with a Grand Event: Hungarian band Tankcsapda farewell concert in Budapest, before they start their 1 year tour in the countryside. The concert was staged by Soproni Brewery, featuring their new alcohol-free beer, the Soproni Szűz (Sopron Virgin). PARK just starts its summer season though, offering great fun for rock lovers, housing even 8 thousand fans.
