Meeting Planners’ Guide to Hungary ”where meetings meet traditi

ns”

Welcome, Hungary is a new favourite in the tourism industry, a place that is enticing and inspirational, and able to offer both originality and quality. It has been a real success story – a dramatic rise in little more than 15 years from a land shackled by communism to a country voted among the world’s most popular destinations for conferences and events. However, scratch the surface and it’s not so surprising. Hungary is conveniently located in the very heart of Europe, and is well served by affordable transport links. It offers a plethora of attractions: bold and intricate architecture, beautiful and varied scenery, and a colourful cultural heritage of music, dance and art. There is a rich culinary tradition too – one that extends well beyond cauldrons of goulash! – and some excellent wines produced in 22 regions. A range of comfortable, well equipped and reasonably priced hotels have been built in Budapest and beyond to cater for conferences and incentive trips, and there are many PCOs and DMCs specialising in organising spotless meetings and unforgettable entertainment. Above all, be assured that your delegates will receive a warm and heartfelt welcome. Choose Hungary for that special event – and relax in the knowledge that everything is in the safest and most professional of hands.

The official website – www.budapestinfo.hu – is the first online stop for potential visitors to Hungary. It contains commonly requested practical information, including details of hotels, restaurants, general ‘facts and figures’ (currency, weather, population, etc), press pages, sightseeing highlights, and much more. The information is available in 17 languages and there is an events calendar in six languages. In addition, the office provides an important information network for visitors in the city. There are six Tourinform offices – found in the city centre, on Castle Hill and at the airport. Several official (and free) publications are printed annually. The Budapest Guide, for instance, is a comprehensive and useful booklet; such publications are distributed to all hotels, tour operators, local and countrywide Tourinform offices and other tourism-related sights. They can also be downloaded from the website. Another product offered by the Tourism Office of Budapest is the Budapest Card, a discount card offering reduced prices on sights, tours, restaurants and baths, as well as free travel on public transport. It can be very useful for tourists on two- or three-day visits, and can be purchased through Tourinforms, travel agencies and online. Address: 1056 Budapest, Március 15 tér 7.

Did You Know? Did you know that Hungary is the land of 1,300 thermal springs, 10 national parks, 8 World Heritage sites and 22 wine regions? Did you know that Budapest’s neo-Gothic Parliament, the gold-plated Grand Synagogue, and the eclectic Széchenyi Baths are all the largest of their kinds in Europe? And did you know that... …Louis XIV, the French monarch, declared Tokaj Aszú, the Hungarian dessert wine, ‘the wine of kings and king of wines’? …Queen Victoria was one of many royal buyers of hand-painted Herend porcelain, and that the company’s leading pattern was named after her? …the spicy Pick Salami is still made to the original, 150year-old recipe? …goulash is a soup and tastes best when cooked in a cauldron over an open fire? HUNGARIAN INVENTIONS AND DISCOVERIES If you pick up the telephone and answer “hallo”, then you’re using a Hungarian word. Tivadar Puskás, the inventor of the first telephone exchange, was Hungarian. When testing his new invention, he excitedly shouted “Hallod?” – “Can you hear me?” in Hungarian – into the mouthpiece. This expression was then adopted by telephone exchanges around the world! There are clues to the origins of a familiar form of transportation in the Hungarian word “kocsi”. The English word “coach” and German word “Kutsche” derive from this. Coaches were first made in the Hungarian village of Kocs in medieval times, and the village gives its name to the Hungarian term. Ernô Rubik was creator of the “magic” Rubik Cube, voted the toy of the year in 1981; so popular was the puzzle that a world championship was organised for devotees.

The ball-point pen was invented by László József Bíró, who drew on his knowledge of printing presses to devise a writing implement that didn’t leak. János Neumann invented the computer. Albert Szentgyörgyi extracted Vitamin C from paprika (Hungarian red pepper) in 1930. Further Hungarian discoveries and inventions include the hologram, the dynamo, the safety match and the helicopter. HISTORICAL BUILDINGS Matthias Church didn’t enjoy the best of days during World War II. Not only was it rammed by tanks, but it was used in turn as a field kitchen by German soldiers and a stable by the Soviets. The beautiful Chain Bridge bears a resemblance to England’s Hammersmith Bridge. Not surprising really because the British engineer William Thierry Clark was responsible for designing both of them. There was a British hand in the construction too, which was overseen by Scotsman Adam Clark. The strategic importance of Buda Castle means that it has been at the centre of many struggles over the years, and has suffered numerous sieges – indeed, it has changed hands over 30 times. The neo-Gothic Parliament building was modelled on England’s Houses of Parliament, and contains 40 million bricks. NATURAL WONDERS Lake Balaton is the largest lake in central Europe – 77 km long but just 1.5 km wide at its narrowest point. Lake Hévíz is the second-largest thermal lake in the world, and bathers can enjoy a warming wallow at any time of the year – even in deepest winter. In autumn 100,000 cranes alight to feed on the Great Plain during their spectacular migration – a must-see for bird lovers.

Hotels beyond Budapest One of Hungary’s greatest charms is the real variety to be found beyond the capital. To the north, you will find lush mountains, to the east a vast expanse of flat and grassy plains, and to the west a diverse blend of forests, hills and wetlands. The variety of landscape is more than

matched by the variety of accommodation. You will find pretty bed-and-breakfasts, large conference hotels, luxury hotels located in former aristocratic mansions, spa hotels sitting on therapeutic thermal springs, and many, many more.

Incentive Programme Suggestions

”where meetings meet traditi ns”

Incentive Programme Suggestions When it comes to choosing an original and creative incentive programme for your delegates, the choice available in Hungary is staggering. Whether you are purely there to enjoy yourself or you wish to tailor a specific team-building exercise that you hope will improve your company’s productivity, you will find that our proposals can satisfy your requirements. Among the suggestions in these pages are programmes that feature rally racing in Trabants, tank driving through forests, feasts

in medieval castles, carriage riding across the plains, water ballet in Art-Nouveau bathhouses, private concerts in the State Opera House, hot air ballooning over the Danube Bend, and golfing on a championship course. You can obtain further details of the agencies organising all these programmes by contacting the Hungarian Convention Bureau. We are waiting to welcome you, and to host an unforgettable and magnificent programme for you and your delegates.

Fashion Show Budapest Retro Experience a real blast from the past! Board a 1960s bus and take a trip back in time! First stop is the bustling Ecseri flea market, where you can browse colourful stalls for some retro treasures – from faded leather jackets to communist medals. Next you will be dropped at the much-loved Menza Restaurant; its mushroom stools and patterned wallpaper evoke the ’60s and ’70s, and the traditional food is top notch. Round off the day with a transfer to the leafy Margaret Island for a bringóhintó grand prix – a calorie-burning race in pedalpowered buggies. If you fancy taxing brains rather than bodies, how about challenging the group with some tests of logic? Hungarians are notoriously resourceful, and they have invented some devilish puzzles over the years – including the iconic Rubik Cube. Replenish the little grey cells with a meal at Holdudvar (Moon Courtyard), a trendy open-air restaurant that is popular with the youngsters. Those of maturer years (but still young at heart) should consider a toe-tapping concert of rock and blues by the Old Boys – Hungary’s answer to Status Quo!

Messing About on Lake Balaton

What better way to spend a morning than messing about in a boat? The warm, clear Lake Balaton – the largest in Central Europe – offers the perfect setting for a spot of sailing. After that, visit the volcanic peninsula of Tihany, with its crater lakes and rugged walking trails. Stroll the cobbled streets of Tihany village, passing quaint fishermen’s cottages and stopping to buy handcrafted souvenirs and bags of paprika. Visit the Benedictine Abbey to admire its dazzling gilded altars, before finishing the day with a fish supper and a glass of local wine at a hillside restaurant – the ideal place to watch the sun set over the lake.

Fashion A Haunting Show Past During those dark days behind the Iron Curtain, enormous statues dominated the streets and squares of eastern Europe. They were instruments of power, hated symbols of red repression, and most were ripped apart and melted down after the fall of communism in the 1990s. However, the Hungarians were more canny. Instead of destroying the monuments, they moved them to Statue Park – an outdoor museum on the outskirts of Budapest. Here you can walk in the shadows of gargantuan bronze images of Lenin, Marx and other communist idols, dating from 1919 up to the 1970s. If you want to spice things up, arrange to be met by some grim-faced secret-service guards with AK-47 rifles, and then enjoy a Molotov cocktail or two – an ’explosive’ blend of lemon juice and vodka...

Fashion The Story Show of the Last Soviet Field Marshal Incentive Programme suggestions

It’s all extremely curious. As your group assembles ready for a day’s entertainment, a sweating, nervous stranger appears from nowhere. Approaching a member of your party, he glances quickly behind him – as if checking he hasn’t been followed – and slips a CD into their pocket. With a desperately whispered ’You have to help me!’, he is gone – and so begins a day of role-playing detective adventure as you attempt to unravel the identity of the mysterious man...

81

Let Battle Commence!

Ever wondered how it feels to be a soldier and travel in 22-tonnes of roaring armour and steel? Well wonder no longer. On this programme, you will be trained in the arts of driving a genuine tank by skilled instructors, before rumbling through murky swamps and dusty scrubland on a 35-acre site. If this is not enough, your group can also participate in a thrilling paintball war. Once you have been kitted out in protective gear, you will take to the field for a right royal battle. What better way to let off some steam than by splattering your friends – or your company boss! – with messy pellets of coloured dye?!

82

A Private Performance

There is no prettier place to hear the fat ladies sing than in Budapest’s 19th-century State Opera House. With its marble lobby, rich frescoes and an auditorium that drips with gold, this is one of Europe’s most opulent music venues. And you and your group can have it all to yourselves! After arriving aboard a vintage underground carriage on continental Europe’s oldest subway, you will climb the sweeping staircase to join a sparkling champagne reception. Then sit back, relax and enjoy a private concert or ballet by some of the world’s leading performers. If you have got a large party, this makes an ideal gala

Fashion Show Dizzying Obstacles and Dazzling Dance It is tough at the top – particularly at the top of a 14-metre pole! This obstacle course in a quiet district of Budapest will test the steeliest of nerves, and is an ideal team-building activity. The group will be kitted out with climbing gear before tackling a series of nerve-jangling challenges on ropes and ladders high above terra firma. Once your feet are back on the ground, you will tuck into a Hungarian banquet at the Ladik Csárda Restaurant while the Honvéd Dance Ensemble entertain you with colourful performances of traditional dance.

Fashion A Village Caught Show in History Take a trip through the ages with a visit to the Open-Air Museum of Szentendre, a short distance to the north of Budapest. This charming

village

There are wooden churches, sheds, barns and gorgeous thatched dwellings from the 18th and 19th centuries. Furthermore, you can arrange for craftsmen to teach the group the tricks of egg painting, weaving and pottery, before watching a performance of traditional dance and sampling some good old-fashioned home cooking.

84

An Evening with Dinner in Buda Castle Labyrinth The system of caves beneath Buda Castle has had a distinctly colourful history, having served variously as wine cellars, a World War II bomb shelter and a Cold War military bunker. Now the caverns host an intriguing series of displays, each with its own distinct theme. Guided by the light of handheld paraffin lamps, you will explore authentic copies of some of Europe’s most celebrated cave paintings in the Prehistoric Labyrinth, sculpted figures from Hungarian and world history in the Historical Labyrinth, and a wine fountain in the Renaissance Rock Hall. If you would like to spice things up further, arrange to be entertained by a fire eater or belly dancer, before heading to the Labyrinth Restaurant for a tasty buffet meal.

Szentendre – A Day of Water, Air and Earth

The pretty, colourful buildings and gorgeous play of light at Szentendre has made it a traditional playground for artists.

86

Fashion Rally Trabant Show There is no more classic symbol of communism than the plastic-boxwith-wheels that is the Trabant! At the height of its popularity in the ’50s and ’60s, there was a 15-year waiting list for this rolling soap dish. Now you can see what all the fuss was about during a rally with a difference! The fleet of 50 cars will be divided into two teams on two farms 25 km apart; once the clock strikes, the race is on to reach the other team’s farm first. However, there are some unexpected and offbeat challenges to test you along the way...

Fashion What Lies Show Beneath – A Chilling Experience Budapest sits atop a network of by thermal water. Deep inside these cool chambers are weird, wonderful and beautiful dripstone formations. You will see some examples during your subterranean trip, as well as a fascinating exhibition of ice sculptures – if you pose for him, the artist will even sculpt a portrait of you.

proper

pampering?

Budapest

Go way back to Hollókô

You will find a healthy slice of yesteryear at Hollókô. This little village of just 400 people – tucked in a valley 100 km from Budapest and surrounded by forested hills – is caught in time, living the life and preserving the folk traditions of a bygone era. The villagers speak with the Palóc peasant dialect and often wear vivid, homemade Palóc costumes; their houses have wooden verandas and contain three rooms, just as they have since the 17th century.
