1 IV. Culture on the border of East and West IV Do not just be a spectator of our bustling cultural life, be a participant, get involved! Hungary is a real cultural adventure: someone living here will not lose contact with European culture, and can experience other spiritual novelties not found elsewhere, and also become a part of a totally autonomous cultural world. Those coming to Hungary, naturally, have the opportunity to see the traditional tourist sites. Utilizing tour books, one can discover the renowned cultural symbols. The Castle of Buda, the Parliament building, the Chain Bridge, the National Museum, the Great Church of Debrecen, the Cathedral of Szeged, the Mosque (Jami) of Pécs, the Minaret in Eger, the nine-arch bridge of Hortobágy, the village museum of Szentendre, and others are all important treasures of European architecture. A trip to the wooden church of Miskolc, a walk in the rustic courtyards of Budapest s downtown, or the discovery of the romantic Abbey of Zirc, can add a great deal to the post card experience. But Hungary is the pulsating living reality of continuously renewing traditions. It is a culture that amazingly combines West-European style and standards with eastern-balkan spice. From arts through fashion and entertainment, Hungarian culture is unmistakable. Beyond this cultural sphere, Hungarian music is perhaps best known by and most accessible to foreigners. Excellent recordings of the classics of Liszt, the epochal works of Bartók, the genius of Dohnányi, Werner, Kodály and Kurtág are all at hand for visitors. The twentieth century revival of folk traditions created new Hungarian music: novelties, beginning with the folk music of Szék, all the way to the chart-topping co-operation between Deep Forest and Hungarian folk-singer, Sebestyén Márta. For those interested in some real Central-European sentimental- 75

2 IV stuff, there are the tunes of the Vienna-Budapest operettas, and the melodies of Lehár Ferenc and Kálmán Imre. Film and movie fans already know that the golden age of European and American movies, the 1960s and 1970s, cannot be conceived without the contributions of Hungarian filmmakers. An excellent opportunity is provided in Hungary to again experience the films of Jancsó Miklós, Makk Károly, Illés György, Zsigmond Vilmos, but this time in their native environments. Contemplative visual experiences are offered by the Csontváry Museum of Pécs, by the periodical exhibitions of the Ernst Museum, or by the unique Feszty Panorama-Painting, constructed in the very centre of the country, in Ópusztaszer. Serious readings in Western languages are also available. Today s Hungarian cultural reality is better accessible through the works of Esterházy Péter, Bereményi Géza, Czakó Gábor, Csaplár Vilmos, Nádas Péter, Konrád György, Petri György and Kertész Imre. The preservation of folk-culture is an organic part of Hungarian art. The work of Bartók and Kodály created a whole new school, renowned throughout the world, especially in the field of music teaching (the Kodály-method). Today, folk-song groups, traditional folk-dance ensembles and a multitude of village museums present the variety of folk-dresses and handicrafts. The so-called dance-houses provide a natural form of entertainment for thousands of young people. Consumer type multiplex movie theaters and shopping malls are a pain in the neck for some, but they perfectly complement the liveliness of Hungarian culture. Alternative culture also finds its place, especially in Budapest s nightlife. This boundless cosmopolitan culture gets along very well with Hungarian national traditions, the latter having absorbed the tumbling history of the whole of Europe. The heritage of ancient Greek-Roman culture, elements of Jewish culture, the multi-ethnic traditions of neighbouring peoples, German and French orientations, Anglo-Saxon inclinations, as well as modern satellite culture are all brought together in a tantalisingly unique mix. So if you are a student looking for an exciting and inspiring environment, where you can spend your wandering collegeyears, Hungary is the ideal place for you! 76

Entertainment Guides Programme in Hungary/Ungarn is a free monthly publication available at most major tourist offices. It contains information regarding various venues, concerts, theatrical productions, jazz clubs, major sports events, recommended restaurants, nightclubs, etc. It also carries useful addresses and phone numbers and not just in Budapest. The Budapest Sun contains a supplement, entitled Budapest Style focusing on the capital. It includes a very comprehensive Event Diary. The most complete guide, however, is probably the Hungarian language Pesti Est (Evening Pest). It is available in almost every cinema free of charge. Knowing just a few Hungarian words, you will be able to make use of it in no time. This guide truly has everything (including a special listing of films in their original languages). Guides similar to the Pesti Est, are being established all around the country (e.g. Miskolci Est, Pécsi Est, Veszprémi Est). These can also be found on the Internet: You can find general tourist information on the homepage of Tourinform: Budapest Leisure Time Guide: 78

5 INFORMATION IV Papers and Periodicals Best known Internet-magazines: If you do not speak Hungarian, the best way to get informed and find your way around Budapest and Hungary, is to pick up one of the foreign language papers. A wide selection of these are now available. Some focus on economic, or financial matters (e.g. Budapest Business Journal and Investment in Hungary), while others are general weeklies (e.g. the German language Pester Lloyd, the English language Budapest Sun, the French language Le Journal francophone de Budapest), others are entertainment guides (e.g. Seven). Still other publications are more academic such as The Hungarian Observer or The Hungarian Quarterly. These papers and journals, as well as the standard international papers can be purchased at most larger newsstands, such as Hírker, Hungaropress, at the airport, or at main Metro stations: Nyugati tér (West Square), Kálvin tér (Kálvin Square), or Keleti Pályaudvar (East Railways Station). If you manage to pick up some Hungarian take a peek into some of the local papers. Political and cultural variety characterises the abundant Hungarian printed media, both in relation to dailies, as well as the various informational and gossip-papers. The Heti Világgazdaság (HVG), a weekly journal in the style of The Economist, is also recommended. Outside Budapest check out some of the regional papers. TV, Radio M1, M2 Duna TV RTL Klub TV2 In urban areas cable TV is available, elsewhere satellite-antennas provide access to foreign stations, as well as a wide range of Hungarian stations. In addition to Hungarian public television (M1, M2, Duna TV ) there are multiple commercial stations (e.g. RTL-Klub, TV2, ATV, etc.) and foreign channels (e.g. CNN, BBC, Discovery, Music TV, etc.) available. The majority of programmes on Hungarian television are dubbed, but check them out as an aid for language learning. Listening to radio is perhaps a better source of locally produced foreign language programmes. Public radio stations (Kossuth, Petôfi and Bartók Rádió) broadcast minority programs (in Slovakian, Romanian, German, etc.). Bartók plays mainly classical music. There are numerous pop-music stations (e.g. Juventus, Sláger, Danubius). EstFM radio station (FM98.6) 79

7 SEEING - LISTENING IV Museums and Galleries (Statue Park) (Palace of Arts) (Hungarian Ethnographic Museum) (Contemporary Arts Museum Ludwig Museum) (MEO Contemporary Arts collection) (Central Gallery) (Museum of Kiscell) Besides the big state museums, there are countless small private galleries. If you want to get a standard overview of Hungarian culture, art and history, visit the permanent exhibitions of the great central museums: the Ethnographic Museum ( The Traditional Culture of the Hungarian People ), the National Museum ( The History of Hungary from Statehood to the Spring of 1990 ), the Museum of Contemporary Arts and the Museum of Fine Arts. If you are interested in the gigantic memorials from the communist dictatorship you must go to the Statue Park Museum (Szoborpark Múzeum). Most museums are open between 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. and closed on Mondays. Some museums and exhibition halls can be visited free of charge on Tuesdays. You can find information on exhibitions and other events in entertainment guides or at the following sites: Cinema HELP_Many cinemas have discount days (e.g. Corvin - Wednesday, Toldi - Tuesday). Like in many other countries, cinema in Hungary is dominated by Hollywood movies. Some are dubbed, but most can be found in the original language. Art films are also widely available: check the cinemas of the so-called Art Kino Network. They are usually listed separately under Art Mozi. For a good movie guide check out: You can find information on Hungarian film making at the following address: 81

8 IV SEEING - LISTENING Theatre Theatre life is quite rich all over the country. In fact, considerable competition exists between the metropolitan and the rural theatres. Many famous actors and directors started their careers and first earned their reputations in the countryside (e.g. Kaposvár, Szolnok, Nyíregyháza, Veszprém etc.). Foreign language performances are held at the: Merlin International Theatre_V. Budapest, Gerlóczy u. 4. (1) as well as at the International Buda Stage_II. Budapest, Tárogató út 2-4. (1) Deutsches Theater Budapest_V. Budapest, Vigadó tér 2. (1) Deutsche Bühne Ungarn_Szekszárd, Garay tér 4. (74) In Pécs, besides Hungarian performances at the National Theatre (Nemzeti Színház), some German language productions are staged, and a few performances in Croatian can also be found. The theatre season begins in September and performances generally start at 7 p.m. It is worth buying tickets in advance. For specifics, check foreign language papers or the local Ests. Opera In addition to Hungarian celebrities, countless excellent foreign performers come to visit. The best pieces of the opera-repertoire are staged at the architecturally outstanding Magyar Állami Operaház (Hungarian State Opera)_ 1061 Budapest, Andrássy út 22. (1) Provincial theatres also have excellent opera companies (e.g. Szeged and Debrecen). 82

9 SEEING - LISTENING IV Operetta Although not the most fashionable genre, operetta is still very popular in Hungary. The Operetta Theatre does stage contemporary musicals, as well as the operettas of Kálmán Imre and others. These provide a pleasant journey back into (musical) history. No rural theatre can go a season without showing at least one or two operettas. Budapesti Operettszínház_(Budapest Operetta Theatre) 1065 Budapest, VI. Nagymezô u. 17. (1) Dance The unique performances of Yvette Bozsik and her Company are a real must see! Although there is no separate building dedicated to ballet performances, several prestigious ballet companies exist such as the Ballet Company of the Opera (usually appearing at the Erkel Theatre), or the renowned Ballet Company of Gyôr. The cities of Szeged and Pécs also have their own excellent companies. Budapest has a very active dance theatre scene. In addition to Hungarian groups, weekly encounters with well-known international companies are also available. Main venues: Trafó - House of Contemporary Arts_1094 Bp., Liliom u. 41. (1) MU Theatre_1117 Budapest, Kôrösy u. 17. (1) Central-Europe Dance Theatre (Közép-Európa Táncszínház)_ Budapest, 1071 Bethlen G. tér 3. (1) Music Listen to Hungarians! (compact disks and LP-s) Béla Bartók: Bluebeard s Castle. (Jessye Norman, László Polgár, Pierre Boulez. Chicago Symf. Orchestra) L. Beethoven: Piano Sonatas vol.1-9. By Annie FISCHER Sir George Solti: (The Last Recording) Bartók Cantata You should look at entertainment guides and street posters attentively, for no week will go by without some world famous musician or musical company appearing somewhere around the country. This is true concerning all genres of music, be it classical, contemporary, world-music or jazz! Classical music concerts usually begin at 7:30 p.m. The most prestigious concert and recital halls in Budapest are the Academy of Music (Zeneakadémia), the Budapest Congress Centre (Budapesti Kongresszusi Központ) and the Matthias 83

10 IV SEEING - LISTENING Church (Mátyás-templom), whereas in the countryside, the castles of Martonvásár, Fertôd, Keszthely, as well as the Churches of Szeged, Debrecen and Pécs serve this purpose. Jazz fans will enjoy the various clubs and restaurants featuring all styles of jazz from classical and standard, to free and experimental. The yearly menu of pop-rock concerts is qualitatively (if not quantitatively) similar to the rest of Europe. Budapest is now a regular stopover for many famous rock bands. Most of them are advertised by posters on the streets of Budapest, so keep your eyes open. Gypsy music (cigány zene) is the favourite genre of restaurants and wedding receptions. It is in fact a special hybrid genre of folk elements from both Gypsy and Hungarian traditional music, combined with popular tunes of the last century. Profana, Kodály: Psalmus Hungaricus, Weiner Serenade. Ferenc Liszt: Hungarian Rhapsodies.

In Budapest: Central Box Office for Theatres_VI. Andrássy út 18. (1) Central Box Office for Concerts_V. Vörösmarty tér 1. (1) InterTicket_Telephone Ticket Service (1) IV MISCELLANEOUS Community Centres The 18 th century cafes such as the Casino of Pest (1830) and the Vigadó (Budapest V., Vigadó tér 2.) can be regarded as the forerunners of today s Community Centres. The impressive cafe buildings were actually designed for cultural events (literature evenings, balls, exhibitions). After the 1950 s a state network of community centres was built. Consequently, almost all Hungarian cities have such establishments today. Programs are available for nearly all generations: libraries, clubs, sport 84

11 MISCELLANEOUS IV communities all operate in these centres. Those interested in crafts, folk concerts, dance programs should visit one of these centres in Budapest (e.g. Community Centre of the Capital (FMH): Budapest XI., Fehérvári út 47.). Hungarian National Holidays March 15 Perhaps the most significant national holiday commemorates the 1848 Democratic Revolution and the War of Independence against the Habsburg rule. There are countless events throughout the country all day. Most Hungarians wear the socalled kokárda. October 23 - Remembrance Day Commemorates the launch of the 1956 Revolution that was suppressed a few days later (November 4) by the invading Russian troops. Many official programmes are organised during the day remembering the victims of the revolution. August 20 - St. Stephen s Day The celebration of independent statehood. Honours the first Hungarian king, St. Stephen (c ). As part of the celebration a Corpus Christi procession is held and the Holy Right Hand (Szent Jobb) of St. Stephen is displayed in the St. Stephen Basilica. Spectacular fireworks over the Danube are organised by the government in the evening. The other public holidays are January 1 (New Year s Day), Easter Monday, Whit Monday, (April-May), May 1 (Labour Day), Day of the Dead (November1), December (Christmas). 85

16 IV PARTYING Discos Every major type of disco is available in Budapest (Rock, Acid, Techno, Rave, Funk and House), but mind the bouncers! Musical events are often organised at unique sites such as thermal spas, industrial warehouses or natural caves. These attract large crowds that can enjoy not only the music but also some famous architectural and natural sites of the country. Other common places for entertainment are the university clubs where entrance for students is often free of charge (e.g. Cellar Club of the Budapest University of Economic Sciences and Public Administration (IX. Fôvám tér 8) or the E-club (X. Népligeti u. 2.). Dance Houses Dance Houses (táncház), popular among Hungarian students, provide a special type of entertainment. Originally created in the 1970 s as a forum for the preservation of traditional Hungarian folk music and dance, they eventually spread both in scope and popularity, creating a whole new type of cultural community. The movement that openly undertook the idea of preserving and emphasising national identity (and thus was often surrounded by political disputes) today offers outstanding cultural programmes. The Dance House scene is now totally multi-ethnic: in addition to Hungarian, Greek, Balkan, Irish, Jewish, and Latin American dance houses can also be found. Since the language of music and dancing is international, such places are ideal for visitors. Get-togethers University life is inseparable from partying. College dorms have wild annual parties. The previously mentioned Stork Balls organised for freshmen are somewhat more respectable. It is worth mentioning that besides birthdays Hungarians also celebrate name days a good excuse as any to party. 90

17 FITNESS IV Sports HELP_If attending an FTC v. Újpest football match, be careful of who you make friends with. Choose oneof the more peaceful areas of the grandstands, where the authentic fans outnumber the more over-excited followers of the game. Active When abroad, it is easy to get lazy. Many Hungarian universities, however, have their own sports facilities, including running tracks, swimming pools, and so on. Do not wait for others to inspire you to become physically active: they probably will not! You will rather have to be self-motivated. The so-called Pesti Est program booklet provides detailed information about sport facilities and events. Advertisements for swimming pools, fitness clubs, sports fields, training programs and associations are also included in the booklet. The ice-rink of the City Park opens in the autumn, while a large variety of outside sports are available for visitors from the spring. Those who are interested in spending time in the fresh air can find numerous hiking routes and more and more bicycle routes in the mountains of the country. In considering water sports, Lake Balaton is a popular destination (swimming, surfing etc.) while fishing and rowing can be a lot of fun in Hungary s larger rivers (Danube, Tisza, Kôrös, Dráva). Renting kayaks and canoes is possible for example in Budapest at Rómaishore and in Tiszafüred on the Tisza River. Travel agencies offer horse-riding tours all year round, golf-courses are also available (e.g. Budapest Hajógyári Island), and finally the truly brave might even try gliding or skydiving! 91

20 IV FITNESS Thermal Baths Budapest Many hot springs can be found within the city of Budapest. This was fully appreciated during the nearly 150 years of Turkish occupation when several Turkish baths were built (Rudas, Király, etc.). These are still operating today. Other spas built around the turn of the century, such as the Széchenyi or the Gellért, are also integral parts of the city s bath-culture, and most definitely worth visiting. Around the country There are several interesting thermal spas elsewhere in the country. Gyula, Hajdúszoboszló, Sárvár and Harkány are important to note. If the opportunity arises, be sure to visit the Cave Bath of Miskolc Tapolca, and the Thermal Lake at Hévíz. Puskás Football, the most popular game in the world is a real national matter, and a source of legends in Hungary. This is partly related to the fact that, at certain points in history Hungarian football achieved extraordinary results. This was so already in the 1930s, but the true peak was reached during the first half of the 1950s. The legendary eleven, the Golden Team comprised of Grosics, Lóránt, Lantos, Zakariás, Buzánszky, Hidegkúti, Bozsik, Budai, Puskás, Kocsis, and Czibor went undefeated for a most remarkable period of time. During their series of victories they defeated the English team at Wembley stadium in April Although the dictatorial communist regime took full advantage of the team s success, the football stars, most of whom emigrated from Hungary, and Puskás Öcsi in particular, have become living legends for Hungarians. Public opinion holds that it is primarily through them that Hungarians are known outside Hungary, and this explains the significance of Hungarian football, despite the fact that its level and internal state today are light-years away from those early achievements as well as from contemporary European standards. 94
