Talking about Hungary

Today’s topic was about Hungary. The teacher Krisztian who is from Hungarian city Szeged told me about his country.

It is a very interesting fact that Hungarian moved a long time ago from Siberia to Eastern Europe. This is why the Hungarian language is so different from languages of neighbors countries. As a guide on Youtube video said, Turul is the mythical bird of the Hungarians who migrated out of the plains of Central Asia. In 896, the bird dropped his sword in the place of modern Budapest.

His opinion that Budapest includes the most interesting sightseeings for tourist. Being on the short of The Danube River the tourist can see a lot of different architectural styles.

Here are the top list of tourist attractions:
The Hungarian Parliament Building lies on the bank of the Danube. It is currently the largest building in Hungary and still the tallest building in Budapest

The current building of Matthias Church was constructed in the florid late Gothic style in the second half of the 14th century.

Fisherman's Bastion is a terrace in neo-Gothic and neo-Romanesque style situated on the Buda bank of the Danube, on the Castle hill in Budapest, around Matthias Church.

St. Stephen's Basilica is named in honor of Stephen, the first King of Hungary (c 975–1038), the whose supposed right hand is housed in the reliquary.

The City Park is a public park close to the center of Budapest and the Széchenyi Medicinal Bath in Budapest is the largest medicinal bath in Europe.

About traditional food:

Goulash is a soup or stew of meat and vegetables, seasoned with paprika and other spices.

Pörkölt is a meat stew which originates from Hungary but is eaten throughout Central Europe and the Balkans.

I heard lots of good responses from people who visited Hungary. Many people compare it with Paris arguing which city is better. Luckily, now we have the opportunity to know about the place which we are going to visit not only through media but communicating with locals. And this online school is a convenient platform for exploring the world.
