Find Your Roots
At the age of 62 in 1873, Ferenc Liszt, the great maestro, wrote in a letter to a friend: ”Despite my lamentable ignorance of the language, I must be permitted to remain from birth to death, in heart and soul, a Hungarian, and hence I am anxious to promote the cause of Hungarian music.”
With this message in mind, Fungarian offers special tours and activities for visitors with Hungarian ancestry. We were inspired by our numerous guests who have a Hungarian name, or a Hungarian parent or grandparent, to set up themed tours focusing on their lost language, or the historical tableaux of Hungary at the time when their ancestors left the country. In the framework of our DISCOVER YOUR ROOTS SERIES, you can choose among six things to do, or you can simply ask for a special tour designed only for you, whether that includes learning some of the language, translating letters from the past, discovering artifacts of bygone times at the flea market, re-living the rural lifestyle, or admiring urban traces of Budapest’s heydays.
If you do not have the opportunity to visit Hungary but are still interested in your roots, we have launched a Facebook page to share cultural trivia and fun facts about the language and our ancient culture.
