I have been planning about to come and visit Hungary in the summer, but nothing is sure yet. I would love to see also the lake Balaton and I was wondering, which city or village would be the good to visit? I was maybe planning Siófok or Balatonfüred? But maybe you can also recommend something else? And is it easy to take a train from Budapest, because the flight connections to Balaton are not so good and cost too much, besides I could see the landscapes better from a train :D
Köszönöm szépen! :)


I would recommend visits to Veszprem and Szekesfehervar too.

Veszprém is a nice town indeed, however I don't find Székesfehérvár that interesting... My favourite town of all is Pécs, it truly looks like a gemstone (and you must visit the early Christian necropolis!) And if you have a little bit more time, you could go to some places not so far away from Miskolc (Lillafüred, the Szalajka-valley, the Tokaj wine region, the Aggtelek caves...)
I also like Eger and I would like to visit the Egerszalók thermal spring one day.
If you visit the Lake Balaton, you must go to Tihany and visit the abbey and its crypt... and the calvary on the hillside :P
Well, I have listed so many places... so, you can make your choice :D Good luck!

Hello Wendy! :)
Thanks for the greetings, I hope you will have the opportunity to visit our country again, soon. :) By the way, what did you do here for that 6 months if I can ask? Did you learn or work here or something like that?

Hello dear Hungarian postcrossers,
me and my brother are traveling to Budapest 22-26.3 and would be interested of meeting some Hungarian postcrossers while we are there. We shall continue our journey to Wien with our sister for the weekend. On next week we go to Pecs where my sister studies arts. We would also like to get good tips where to go for 1-2.4. Is it diffifult to travel to Balaton lake from Pecs? Any good places nearby and if anyone is interested of meeting us or showing us place we would be more than happy. We travel home 3.4 by Budapest.
See you in Hungary!!

Hello!
Unfortunately I can't meet you in Hungary as I am in France right now. But I wish you a pleasant journey!

From Pécs there are either direct buses to Siófok or through a connection in Kaposvár. But the direct ones are faster, obviously :D

You may try http://www.menetrendek.hu for timetables (Volán is the name of the bus company), however it's only in Hungarian. (Honnan=from, hova=where, keresztül=through)

Hello :)
I live near Budapest, so I could help you somehow. I'm still not sure if i am free those days you are here but if I am I could definetely show you some places around here. :)
Anyway, if you want to visit an other nice Hungarian city, i think you would enjoy visiting Szeged. It's my favorite city in Hungary. (you can read things and see pictures about Szeged at this website: http://www.szegedportal.hu/ you can read it in english, too)

Anyway, do you know already where are you going to stay in Budapest?

Hello everyone! :D


Is there anyone willing to swap for a map of your country that is stamped and written or a UNESCO site perhaps?

I am planning on featuring stamped and written postcards this year with a description written about your language or the country as a whole.

Hello :)

I wonder if someone in the Hungarian community would be kind enough to help me with my silly question :) I’m coming to Budapest next week and we are also going to Bratislava for couple of days from Budapest. I’d just like to doublecheck that I have understood the ticket price on MAV website correctly; it says that the return ticket from Keleti pu to Bratislava central station is 16 euros – is it really so little? And also, do you think that it’s a one-way ticket, or return ticket (like it says) – I’m just asking because when I was googling I run into another site where it said that it’s 16 euros one way.

If someone could help me out, that would be wonderful :) Thank you very much in advance. (I'm just trying to minimize the surprises at the train station when we go to buy the tickets next Monday. ^^)

Lets see if I can post the link to the MAV site here.. http://elvira.mav-start.hu/elvira.dll/xslms/uf
// edit // no, it didn't work, but the attatchment should..


EDIT // Thank you to the nice person who u2ued me :)

I have a couple of questions about Hungarian pastries :)

I buy this cake from a Hungarian bakery. The two ladies there don't speak very much English. They called this one cake "drummer" which I'm not sure is right but I didn't want to be rude and embarrass them. It is a white cake with many layers filled with a creamy chocolate icing and coated with dark chocolate, Not too sweet and the cake is light in texture. What is it called?

I also buy a pastry that is filled with white cheese. What kind of cheese is it and what is the pastry called?

There is also a sweet pastry I call a mille feuille but was wondering if there is a Hungarian name ?

Thanks if you can help me out. I do like Hungarian food and sweets

Hello! :D Wow, it's nice to hear that you like Hungarian pastries (and that there is a Hungarian bakery near you :))
I think the cake you bought was the famous "dobostorta" (Dobos (=drummer) was the name of the man who invented it), although the most common one has a hard layer of caramel on the top. :) See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dobos_torta :)
About the cheese cake, in Hungarian this type of cheese (curd cheese, quark) is called "túró" and it's very popular in my country and almost everywhere in Central and Eastern Europe. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quark_(cheese))

Szia!
Anyone up for a meeting next month?

Are you in Budapest yet?
Or you just put that Hungarian flag in your profile as a preparation... or maybe to make your profile more colourful...? :D
It's strange, before you asked this I thought you were only going in the summer.

Hello,

- postcard to Europe & outside Europe (airmail/surface)
Europe: 230 HUF / 210 HUF
outside: 260 HUF/ 230 HUF

- registered letter to Europe (less than 20 g)
airmail: 230 HUF + 700 HUF = 930 HUF
surface: 210 HUF+ 700 HUF = 910 HUF

But if you want to send something (not a paper or postcard) in an envelope, what less than 20 g, you can send it
airmail: 290 HUF + 700 HUF = 990 HUF
surface: 270 HUF+ 700 HUF = 970 HUF
