Reviving literature

By Petra Tkalcec / 2013-04-11

It is National Poetry Day in Hungary today. Celebrated ever since 1964 to commemorate the birthday of  Attila Jozsef, the poet.

Skiing Hungary: Mátraszentistván

By Petra Tkalcec / 2013-03-18

Last week we thought the spring is here, but towards the weekend the snow came back in form of a snowstorm that trapped thousands of people in their cars for over 20 hours. Now, it can easily be that people who found themselves trapped, half-frozen and hungry do not wish to read about snow or […]

By Petra Tkalcec / 2013-02-15
