Uránia cinema

by paddingtonbears

I'd like to go to the Uránia cinema while I'm in Budapest, but I'm held back by not knowing Hungarian. Does anybody know where I can find out in English about what films will be on? I understand from a guidebook that the Uránia does show film in Hungarian with English subtitles, and English with Hungarian subtitles, as well as English films with no subtitles. Of course, the best thing would be to see a Hungarian film with English subtitles. Failing the availability of anything in English, would there be films in German, or in Hungarian with German subtitles?

Here is the link (only available in Hungarian) to the theatre: you dont need to speak Hungarian to see whats on etc; most of the films are in Hungarian with English sub-titles. : http://www.urania-nf.hu/

oops, I forgot to add that you can also search for any films in English in Budapest by using this link: http://www.budapestsun.com/movies.php

Thanks. I looked at the site, and with some help from Google I managed to work most of it out. The films generally just say that they are with subtitles, not specifying whether that is a foreign film subtitled in Hungarian or a Hungarian film subtitled in English or another language. Maybe it will be easiest just to go into the cinema when I arrive.

I am mostly wanting to go because I want the experience of going to see a film at this very famous and beautiful cinema. I understand that there are two "halls" there. Do I have to go to one in particular to get the complete experience, or are they both pretty much the same?

You can tell what nationality the film is in: if it says magyar=hungarian, if it say american= american, if it says olasz= italian, if it says francia=french etc. The site also provides some videos and trailers. Sometimes you can use the google translator. Evidently, if the film is not 'magyar' then it will most likely be in the original language with Hungarian subtitles. Lots of American and 'angol'=english as well. To get the full experience, find a film you like, go to that one, and then find another one in the other hall. Many people just go to the coffee shop and enjoy the Urania that way. Congratualations, you have choosen a thing to do in Budapest that is not the everyday tourist attraction and one you will always remember.

Travel Tips for Budapest

Prince Eugene of Savoy - Equestrian Statue

by littlesam1

If you have visited any of my VT pages you will find that I always am fascinated by equestrian statues when I visit a city. I found this beautiful statue at the castle on the Buda side of the city. I wrote down a couple of hasty notes and then did some research when I got home. The statue is a memorial to Prince Eugene of Savoy. When I started my research I found some fascinating information about Prince Eugene that might be interesting to anyone who visits Budapest and finds the memorial. Prince Eugene was known for cross dressing, was slight of build and part of the circle of the transvestite Abbe de Choisy. He was known for opposing French ambition in Euorpe, battling the Ottoman Turks on the battlefield in Vienna in 1683, and for becoming the principal Austrian commander during the War of the Spanish Succession. He is known as one of the most brilliant generals in Hapsburg Empire. He died one of the wealthiest men in Europe. You never know what you will learn when you take a picture of a statue and then research it later.

There is a similiar equestrian memorial to Prince Eugene in Vienna.

Enjoy the Castle Grounds

by azz8206

I could of gone inside the Buda Castle, instead I was quite content walking around its grounds. I enjoyed the grand views over Budapest and Gellert Hill. I enjoyed sitting in its gardens and people watching. I tried my hand at archery for 500HUF. But most of all I enjoyed the many statues situated around the grounds. Like the Matthias Fountain which depicts a hunting party led by King Matthias Corvinus together with bloodhounds and a killed deer. I thought it was visually stunning. The Turulbird perched high above the Danube with the Sword of Attila firmly clasped in its talons was also magnificent. There are also many other statues on the grounds and lining the facade of the Castle that one can enjoy.
There are two museums inside the Castle. The first is the Budapest History Museum which presents Budapest from its beginning up until the end of the Communist era. The second is the Hungarian National Gallery and it presents Hungarian art from all genres. The Hungarian National Library is also found in Buda Castle. It has all the works of the Hungarian chronicler Anonymus.
The Buda Castle had been destroyed and gutted many times over by the Christians, the Allied bombing of Budapest during WW2 and the Communists. The Ottomans left the palace in a decayed state. But today it still stands while those that perpetuated the damage have long gone. That is a testament to the Hungarian people.

The Hungarian Agricultural...

by chrissyalex

The Hungarian Agricultural Museum. I found this museum very interesting even though it was mostly in Hungarian. It had all the different tools and methods people used on farms throughout Hungary's history.

15th March - Kokarda

by MedioLatino

The 15th March is a National Holiday in Hungary to commemorate the revolution of 1848.

The so called "Kokarda" is a symbol we wear around this day, since that was the sign of the members of the revolution at their time.

It's basically a small ribbon of the Hungarian national flag. This one on the jacket of my niece, Eszter :)

Hidden church

by Pieter11

In the Gellerthegy, The Gellert-hill in Buda, there is a hidden church. This church is inside the hill, as a cave. You can go inside for free and see the whole lot of rooms that this church is made of.

Go up from the Skt. Gellert Tér towards the top of the hill, and you can´t miss it!
