Hungarian Countryside
May-June 2013

Back to Trip Index

When you think of Hungary, you think of paprika and we saw LOTS of paprika and paprika products as well as traditional crafts

Both in the museum
and in a recreated 19th century house

Colorful handpainted walls and furniture, religious images, clothing and bedding indicates that
this family enjoyed a better lifestyle than that of those who emigrated to the USA in such large numbers
We saw both common and unusual animals at a farm where old traditions are kept alive
Back to our ship for a short break
and back to the countryside to tour a magnificent cathedral


Catacombs from the Roman Era



Modern declarations of love - lock on a fence - just like in Cologne
Time to explore the town

This large house of worship has had a varied history.

Note both the cross and crescent on top.


The Synagogue is located on a main square

Among all the historical building and statues, some modern activities
were being demonstrated and filmed by a TV station.
