Budapest Spring Fair
Another staple in the smorgasbord of Budapest fairs is setting up shop on a regular, annual basis: the Spring Fair stocks its stalls in the public space in front of City Hall to please and tease all those fascinated with traditional design knickknacks and collectables. The fair is complete with cultural diversions.
Hungarian Open Air Museum, Szentendre
This quaint Danube-side village is not just home to an old Serbian Orthodox church and romantically colourful winding streets, as its village park, Scansion, will, over Easter, become home to an Easter Festival. Complete with traditional egg painting, a spring awakening and a bunny fest, the festival aims to revive old customs related to spring’s most symbolic celebration.
Hollókő’s Easter Festival celebrates the joy of life, reviving traditions long forgotten to mark the occasion. Enjoy cultural diversions, presentations of traditional folk customs and regional “Paloc” culinary treats against the backdrop of Hollókő’s famous peasant houses and cobbled streets. There will be special programmes for children, while adults will busy themselves pouring well water over women dressed in their best traditional embroidered outfit – an old Easter custom to make sure women won’t wilt.
Train History Park
The history of locomotives comes alive in Europe’s biggest such thematic park, Vasúttörténeti Park. Apropos of Easter, the park will hold a day of diversions titled “Easter Bunny Hunt”.
