"Music is the most direct way..." Hungary Local Custom Tip by klaudio

Hungary Local Customs: 67 reviews and 58 photos


Music is the most direct way to understand Hungarian soul and culture.The Hungarian language in fact is very difficult to learn and understand for a foreigner,so the most immediate mean of communication is music.Hungarians are very passionate of it,everyone knows some traditional songs,many people knows how to play an instrument and you can listen to music everywhere,for exemple in many restaurants there are little orchestras.
If you can,you should go to a concert in one of the many places where they are played,like the National Theatre,Andrassy ut,Pest (operas) or at the Vigado,Vigado tér,Pest(concerts) or visit one of the museums dedicated to the famous Hungarian musicians,like Liszt,Bartok or Kodaly.
