Each year the Cake of Hungary competition is organized by Hungarian Confectionery Industry Association on the occasion of the national holiday, August 20th, the day on which Saint Stephen founded Hungary. It is a popular tradition to celebrate the most talented Hungarian confectioners and promote culinary innovation. This year the cake “Naughty Plum Prince” has been the winner of the contest.
On April 11 Hungarians celebrate National Poetry Day and its literary tradition isn’t so familiar among international student or foreign people living in Hungary. First for fun, but later for building a bridge between cultures, Owen Good decided to translate contemporary work like poems written by Hungarian poets Renátó Fehér or Krisztina Tóth.
On 8 November Hungary will be one of the hosts of the MTV Europe Music Awards in 2020. Although the event will be broadcasted online, several iconic Hungarian cities and landmarks will be seen by those who follow the events.
