    Going to the thermal bath is a well spread habbit in Hungary. In Székesfrhérvár will you find Árpád Fürdö along Kossuth utca. Árpád (~845 - ~907) was the leader of a confederation of tribes and is regarded as the founder of Hungary. The word "fürdö" means "bath".

    Thank you=Köszönöm,
    Good Afternoon=Jó napot,
    Hi=Szia or Hello,
    Goodbye=Viszontlátásra (God save the travellers from pronouncing it...) or Viszlát (it's a little bit easier, isn't it?),
    Street=utca,
    Railway station=vasútállomás,
    Bus station=autóbusz állomás,
    Restaurant=étterem,
    Post office=posta,
    right=jobbra,
    left=balra,
    straight away=egyenesen
    (I'll add others if more comes into my mind)

    Szent István Király Múzeum, Új Magyar Képtár (Megyeház u. 17)
    This gallery of temponary exhibitions isn't far from the Main Squere. We were there to see the photo gallery of Lucien Hervé, a famoust hungarian-french photo artist. For the children there's an old MIG airplane in the garden, they'll love it. The exhibition is over, but the gallery convinced me. This is a photo made by Hervé and has nothing to do with Székesfehérvár.
