HAZI ALDAS (translated from Hungarian)

"BLESSING OF THE HOME"
Where there is faith, there is love,
Where there is love, there is peace,
Where there is peace, there is blessing
Where there is blessing, God abides
Where God is, nothing is lacking


Dear Visitor,

Initially, the site was created to house the beautiful and memorable postcards I received from Hungary for Christmas, New Year's, & Easter holidays, & also Birthday and Name Days. Later, it grew to include photos of my visits to Hungary in 1999 and 2001. I added favorite links to villages, towns & cities West of the Danube (Dunantuli) and the Eastern Bakony Mountain region.

Since one of my first loves is traditional music and dance, I have links to these.

I love Hungarian castles so some sites with photos are included.

Thirdly, wine cultivation has always been a fascination. It was part of everyday life in Bakonycsernye. My family & everyone we knew had vineyards. This is hard to fathom for people growing up in cities, but it is true! Sadly, most people are disconnected from the very earth that sustains life and to which we will return ...

FAVORITE LINKS (on the left side bar) has grown extensively, to include recipes, Hungarian on-line gift shops, bookstores, & even Hungarian card games. There are links to museums, plus historical towns & cities in Hungary.

NAVIGATION FOR FAVORITE LINKS
Each SECTION I - IX lists a variety of topics. After finding your topic, scroll to the numerical section to find the links. I am proud of the rich collection of information I have amassed about Hungary. I hope you enjoy your visit here.
With fondness,
Erika

NEWEST MUSIC & VIDEO DISCOVERY:

GREEK MUSIC (my favorite!) exists in Hungary!

There is a Greek town named Beloiannisz in Hungary ...

Click on word "belépes" (enter).

Go to "Content tools" select a video from drop down menu ...

Click here:  http://www.pyrgos.hu 

Listen to Greek musicians and view videos of Greek Dance Ensemble from a town in Hungary called Beloiannisz in Fejér Megye. Greek immigrants settled in Hungary and named the town after a Greek Communist martyr, Nikos Beloiannisz. While I am not a Communist sympathizer, I love Greek music and my love of Greek music and culture transcends politics so I include this link here! May my Hungarian Freedom Fighter ancestors (some of whom shed their blood for freedom) forgive me ... At least now there is peace, freedom of expression, the right to vote and the right to own private property, land, and a business in Hungary.
