Heavy is more than 20g. And yes, I went to the post office.
Do you write "Imprimés" on packages?

It's an international sign for parcels with printed matters. In some countries it is a different type of correspondence. On the site of Hungarian Post I have found only letters, but now I am a bit suspicious.
Thank you for your answer, anyway.

I am trying to collect the book 'The Little Prince' in every European language. I have a few already but there's still a lot of languages I need.
If anyone has a Hungarian copy they can swap with me I would be very happy :D

Hello. dear friends! I'm going to visit Budapest this july. Of course there will be different excursions, but one day will be free. Can you tell me what interesting places i can visit in Budapest? I'm interested in culture, architecture or something special about your country/city.
And of course a question from a postcrosser :) Where can i buy stamps and how much costs to send a card to Europe?
And finally can you write me some words in hungarian language, suah as "hello, good bye, thank you, please..."

Thank you in advance!

I`ll jump in with my 2 cents since this community seems to have died off a while ago...

Maybe you would like to go to the Heroes Square museums and down Andrassy Avenue, stop on Terror museum on the way and go through the chain bridge up to the Fishermen Bastion and check the museums there too. That sounds like a good programme to me before walking around the old streets of Buda or going to the Margaret Island or the Gellert Baths.

Hello/good bye - Sziastok
Please - Kérem
Thank you - Köszönöm

Hi,
This seems to be the most recent topic, so I'll copy my message here, if you don't mind. :)

I'd be really greatful to anyone who could help me with the translation.

Last August I was in Budapest, and believe it or not, found three vintage postcards just lying on the bench near the Parliament. I'd like to find out what they said, including the address/name. Here they are:

Hi, am spamming a bit here :cool:
I was on official site and suggest you would read this:
http://www.postcrossing.com/blog/2011/11/07/swab-your-cheeks-for-am...

I can't register (too old) but maybe you can?
Think that you can maybe save someone's life. :)

It's not 100% understandable even to me, but let's give it a try :)

I think others might be interested in the translation, too, so I would prefer to share it here :) (btw lucky that I checked this thread exactly today when you posted this because otherwise I am not very active on pc forums anymore).

1) The addressee is "Lady Mrs. Pál Tóth" (a couple of decades ago Hungarian women used to take the whole names of their husbands + a "-né" suffix) and a Romanian address (a significant part of today's Romania used to be a part of Hungary before WWI)

Dear Mum!
I notify you that on Friday or on Saturday the latest we are permanently moving home. We will talk more face-to-face. Aranka is kissing your hands (=sends greetings)
Kissing your hands, <name> (I think Ambrus)

2) My dear sweet Mother,
I notify you that we arrived successfully with no problem. What's new at home, aren't you sick! (with an exclamation mark instead of a question mark... hmmm)
Aranka is kissing your hands.
Kissing your hands,
<the same guy>

3) (with terrible spelling)
in the address line:
Major (as in the military rank) ??? (maybe "shelter/home")
to Miss Margitka Csiszár, Kézdivásárhely (again, it's in today's Romania)

Dear Margit,
I haven't written for a long time, now it's time to remember you as well. Right now I'm sitting at the small marble table, thinking of you and how good it would be to be at home among you.

Best regards, Zaki (?)

(I have no idea why the letter "a" of this last person looks like a Russian "ya")

Hi Kriszti,
Thank you so very, very much! I didn't even hope my cards would be translated so soon!

It was very interesting to find out a little bit about the people who sent those cards many years ago... Dzięki wielkie za tłumaczenie :)

Feel free to contact me whenever you need any help with translating something to/from Russian.

Best,
Svetlana
