In celebration of Hungary Exchange's Facebook group reaching 2,000 members, I have decided to have a contest! Magyar Marketing and myself have graciously donated several items for the contest:
  • A laminated map of Hungary, circa 1910, highlighting the borders of Hungary prior to it's separation from the Treaty of Trianon. Each county is highlighted in it's own color and crests (coat of arms) for each county can be found along the borders of the map.
  • A DVD of "Trianon", a film directed by Gábor Koltay.
  • Authentic Hungarian paprika!
Enter The Contest Here!
