Christmas Market pictures

The Christmas Market in Budapest is a giant success every year, and every day crowds walk around the Vörösmarty Square in Budapest to drink hot wine from Budapest mugs and to enjoy the nice christmas shows, music and shopping opportunities. The Christmas Market this year lasts until December 29, so if you have not seen it yet, you still have the chance. If you want to join us on a day trip to the Christmas Market in Vienna, you can read more about that on our Day trip to Vienna-page.

Disney on Ice in Budapest: Mickey & Minnie’s Magical Journey

It has almost become a nice christmas tradition in Budapest with Disney on Ice. This year the visitors can enjoy Mickey & Minnie’s Magical Journey in the Papp László Budapest Sportarena. Mickey & Minnie’s Magical Journey is currently the longest running show on tour after opening in St. Petersburg, Florida on October 12 in 1995. It has since then undergone small changes a couple of times.

Mickey & Minnie’s Magical Journey tells the story of an adventure by Mickey and Minnie that lets them see parts of Under the Sea, Neverland, Hawai, and Africa.

Press release:
More apt to cite stately rock paragons Burt Bacharach and Brian Wilson as
their inspirations than Derrick May or Aphex Twin, the French duo Air gained inclusion into the late-’90s electronica surge due chiefly to the labels
their recordings appeared on, not the actual music they produced.
Their sound, a variant of the classic disco sound coaxed into a relaxing
Prozac vision of the late ’70s, looked back to a variety of phenomena from
the period synthesizer maestros Tomita, Jean-Michel Jarre, and Vangelis,
new wave music of the nonspiky variety, and obscure Italian film
soundtracks. Despite gaining quick entrance into the dance community
(through releases for Source and Mo’ Wax), Air’s 1998 debut album, Moon
Safari, charted a light well, airy course along soundscapes composed
with melody lines by Moog and Rhodes, not Roland and Yamaha. The presence of several female vocalists, an equipment list whose number of pieces stretched into the dozens, and a baroque tuba solo on one track all of this conspired to make Air more of a happening in the living room than the dancefloor.
