Budapest: Pearl of the Danube with Mariya Fogarasi
May 19, 2022 at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT
Hungary’s capital city has long been acclaimed as one of Europe’s most beautiful, with its parliament building frequently highlighted in advertisements for Danube river cruises. Come and travel through one of the Roman empire’s northern provinces and experience the spas, bridges, markets, and historical areas of “Buda” and “Pest,” two cities which, along with Obuda, merged in 1873 to form the popular tourist destination we know today. We’ll look at geography, history, cuisine, landmarks, and culture. Let Mariya Fogarasi pique your curiosity and entice you to come along on her tour of Budapest, a city where she spent six wonderful years exploring, mastering the language, and sampling delicious Hungarian specialties (accompanied, preferably, by traditional violin music).
Mariya’s husband, John, has extensively researched his family history; she will include it.
