Favorite thing: This is just a nice picture of the Hungarian flag. Close to the House of Parliament, you can read that the Hungarian Flag has an hole in it, because on October 23, 1956, the revolutionists (Hungarians who revolted against the Sovjet Union) tord out of it the foreign coat of arms that symbolized the power of the Sovjet Union and Communism. Since then, this flag has symbolized the freedom of the Hungarian Nation.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
