Autumn and Halloween in Budapest

Autumn Leaves in Budapest

I love the four seasons. Actually, I should say I love the changes of the seasons. The most colourful is the Autumn season and it is one of my favourite. In Budapest, there are many beautiful spots to see the autumn colours. During this time, our American friends are busy decorating their homes and facade to celebrate the Halloween too.

Snétberger Music Talent Center

Jazz

Sárközi Lili and Sárközi Józsika students of the Snétberger Music Talent Center are performing in the Ráday street. The Center supports talented Roma youngsters to improve their skills in jazz, classical and world music. The initiative was established by one of my favourite Hungarian jazz guitarist Ferenc Snétberger.

Winter’s Special Protection | Mihály Vörösmarty

Winter Protection of Carrara marble statue of Mihály Vörösmarty

Downtown Pest. Here’s where the Carrara marble statue of Mihály Vörösmarty can be found. If you are a tourist visiting during this time, you see it only in this manner. Just because in Winter, this statue is protected in this ‘bubble-like’ special protective material.

Ede Kallós and architect Ede Telcs had their work made from Haraszt quarry limestone blocks. Mihály Vörösmarty is surrounded by figures representing all classes of society: worker with his wife and small son, man wearing traditional ceremonial clothes, woman with a baby in her arms, schoolboy, old peasant, farmer and peasant girl, gentlewoman and grown-up student, shepherd boy, and old woman with her grandchild. If you are curious, click here for the ‘unveiled version‘ :)

Christmas Fair, Christmas Festival in Budapest

Smelled the wonderful aroma of the fresh bread ‘lángos’ that is baked in traditional “Töki” clay oven or these sinful looking but very delicious skewed meat. Keep your body warm by sipping hot Mulled Wine served in special ‘Budapest designed’ mug which you can take home. That just summarizes the Christmas festivity mood here in Budapest, but you really must experience the mood of it!
