Hi there!
It is so hard to get any Hungarian viewcards.
Is anyone interested in swapping a viewcard from Croatia?
I will send written and stamped.
Sorry, I can´t speak Hungarian, but I can write you in German, Japanese and English.
If you are interested in, please send me U2U :)

Szia, Hungarian Postcrossers!

My friends would love to visit Hungary (Budapest and Hévíz) in Christmas Holidays. Maybe you can recommend any interesting feasts or concerts this time?

Hello! :) I'm sorry that I didn't write before... I don't know on exactly which day they will come here - before of after the Catholic Christmas... Before the 24th December there are several concerts, like those of folk singers and other singers and choirs (if so, I can search for more info). On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day there are usually no concerts because everyone is at home :) though 24 December around 4 pm many churches organize "Bethlehem plays" where the actors are children :)
In Hévíz there seems to be a Christmas market that ends on 31 December. The one in Budapest (Vörösmarty square) is bigger and it ends on 29 December. :)

Hello!
I came to ask you a favour!
I'm user at croatian wikipedia and i like to translate few sentences about my village to foreign language. I have a small text in english, can anyone translate it to magyar? I will send a "thank you" postcard in return.
Here is that text:

Soljani are a village in Cvelferija in the southernmost part of Vukovar-Srijem County (Vukovár-Szerém megye). From the 2001 census the village had a population of 1554 inhabitants.

It was first mentioned in 1329 as “Sauly, Sali posessio”, and since then the village name has been connected with the word “salt” (sol means salt in Croatian). During the Roman Empire the village was plotted on the history maps as “Saldis”, and one of the main roman roads that lead to Sirmium (Szávaszentdemeter) went via Saldis.

The village’s greatest development was during the 18th and the 19th century when the Slovaks from Vojvodina and Slovakia settled there. Today their decedents are the biggest minority in the village.

Thank you!

Soljani egy falu Cvelferijaban, amely Vukovár-Szerém megye legdélibb részen fekszik. A 2001-es népszámláláskor a falu lakossága 1554 fő volt.

Először 1329-ben említik, mint "Sauly, Sali posessio", és azóta a falu neve kapcsolatban áll a "só" szóval (a horvát 'sol' sót jelent). A római birodalom ideje alatt a falu mint "Saldis" néven találjuk meg a történelmi térképeken, és az egyik legfontosabb római ut Saldis varosan keresztül vezetett Sirmium-ba (Szávaszentdemeter) .

A 18. és a 19. században volt a falu legnagyobb fejlesztése , amikor a vajdasági szlovákok és a szlovákok ott letelepedett. Ma az ő utodaik vannak a legnagyobb kisebbségben a faluban.

Szia friends,
:)
My children are going to visit Hungary next week. Due my x-husbands' work the kids lived in Hungary with him for a while, in Györ. They come to see what's changed, if anything.
They are going to fly to Budapest on Thursday afternoon and return to Finland on Easter Sunday.
I've persuaded them to send some postcards. :D Now, I'd like to know some tips, where to find cards on Easter time and where to buy stamps. All the cards are sent inside Europe.

You can answer me here or send u2u, either way, I'm thankful.:)

Hello!

Hm... the most popular (and cheapest) place to buy postcards is Képesbolt in Deák Ferenc tér (square), the postcards there cost 30 HUF, if I remember right. However, at this time of the year it's most probably full of Easter postcards, leaving only a smaller place for viewcards. My favourite place to buy cards (because I think there you can find nicer ones) is right in the opposite side of the Great Market Hall on Vámház körút (boulevard). It's a newspaper shop with a small souvenir kiosk near a post office.

About stamps, they sell them at every post office and even some souvenir shops. But I recommend you to go to a "Postabolt" (Post shop) where they have nicer stamps. One of them is in the main post office on Petőfi Sándor utca (street) but I think it's only open (the Post shop, not the whole P.O) between 10-16 h. Another one is on Teréz körút (boulevard) near the Western Railway Station, but I don't know about its opening hours.

Do not hand already written cards to P.O. clerks because they put the ugly sticker on them without asking you.

Cards to Europe cost 210 HUF (non-priority) - I think the priority ones are 230 HUF, but I'm not sure because I almost never send my cards that way :D

I wish them a nice time in Hungary!

Hi! I collect postcards of UNESCO sites and unfortunately I'm still missing all of the Hungarian sites. Does anyone here have a card of one (or several) of those sites and would be willing to swap?
I could offer German UNESCO site cards from Goslar, German Wadden Sea, Sanssouci and New Palais in Potsdam, Berlin Museum Island and Cologne Cathedral (I have many, many new ones of Cologne Cathedral...) as well as Rome & Vatican and Westminster Palace, Westminster Cathedral and the Tower of London but also many non-UNESCO cards - different German cities, animals, Krtek, lali riddle cards and much more.
You can find the Link to my Cards for Trade (including two albums of UNESCO cards) in my signature. Please notice that not all of my trade cards are scanned and uploaded yet - if you are looking for specific kinds of postcards that you don't find in the albums just ask, I may have some anyway.

These are the missing sites:
- Budapest, including the Banks of the Danube, the Buda Castle Quarter and Andrássy Avenue
- Old Village of Hollókő and its Surroundings
- Caves of Aggtelek Karst and Slovak Karst
- Millenary Benedictine Abbey of Pannonhalma and its Natural Environment
- Hortobágy National Park - the Puszta
- Early Christian Necropolis of Pécs (Sopianae)
- Fertö / Neusiedlersee Cultural Landscape
- Tokaj Wine Region Historic Cultural Landscape

Thanks for your help!

Hi! I have the Secret Christmas cards RR. In this RR you can choose yourself how many cards you send/receive. I am sorry, but we have not yet any postcrosser from Hungary. So all people, who are interested about Christmas cards are very welcome. From Hungary and from all other countries too. You can find the link to RR in my signature.

Can somebody translate it in Magyar language and copy to right place?

Hi again,
the Hungarian Post has lost already two heavy envelopes in succession (I have paid properly). Maybe it is forbidden to send heavy envelopes because the sorting machine eats them? How do you arrange swaps then? Is there any guarantee that registered letter won't be lost too? I know that my question is silly, but the situation is silly too.
Please, somebody, answer me!

what do you mean by heavy? Did you go with them to a post office, or how did you send them?
I doesn't swap very often packages, but until now I had no such problem. But unfortunately I have some post office where my cards are always lost. I don't know what can we do...
Registered letters should arrive properely as they are registered so they don't get lost...
