Bull's Blood (Bikavér)

When you hear the words "Bull's Blood" you are more likely to think of Eger (and more recently the Szekszárd) wine regions, and completely rarely really the blood of a bull. There are several legends explaining the wine's rather unusual name; the most famous is connected with the siege of Eger Castle in 1552, immortalised in Géza Gárdonyi's classic novel.

Béres Drops (Béres Csepp)

Here in Hungary this world-famous product from Dr. József Béres has been synonymous with the word 'health' for decades. Béres drops are used successfully both in Hungary and abroad in the prevention of illnesses, and the treatment of health problems facing people of all ages.

Gyula Sausages (Gyulai kolbász)

The sausages, whose name has become synonymous with the town in which they are made, started out life at the end of the 19th century in what were pretty inauspicious circumstances.
The recipe of the typically peppered and smoked sausage is secret.  In 1935, this sausages won a gold medal at the Brussels World Exhibition.

Herend Porcelain

Herend "white gold" is classical hard porcelain, made from a mixture of china-clay, felspar and quartz sand which is then sluiced, strained and pressed. The pieces made from these raw materials are all made by hand.
It was at the World Exhibition in London held in 1851 that Herend's perhaps most famous pattern, a design incorporating Chinese-influenced butterflies and flower patterns painted in fresh, lively colours, came to the world's attention.

Kecskemét Apricot Brandy

The taste you get in Kecskemét apricot brandy comes from the soil, the sun and the carefully tended trees. Many believe that it's the apricot's characteristic flavour which makes apricot brandy such a great drink; others point to the technological improvements made by Zwack Unicum Ltd. The fact remains that the apricots would not have their unique flavour without the region's golden soil, which plays such an important part in the ripening process and preserves the fruit's flavour. Edward VIII. once said of apricot brandy, "With soda it's better than whisky and soda, and added to tea, it's better than tea and rum."

Makó Onion

As well as being one of mankind's most important sources of nourishment, the onion has been a medicinal plant for many thousands of years. Throughout history, the world's best doctors have written about the beneficial effects of onions. In 1858, Louis Pasteur wrote about their antibacterial properties; Albert Schweitzer showed onions could be used in the treatment of dysentery. Today, medical journals describe onions as being one of alternative medicine's most important remedies.


In the center 19. Jh. Szeged became to the most important Paprikacenter of Hungary. The sharpness of the spice powder was adjusted by the addition of the seeds and veins. Kalocsa became around 1920 with its mild Paprikappowder the competitor of Szeged. These two areas supply the majority of the paprika, which is for the tourists  a practical present and  means a typically Hungarian taste at the same time. In hot fat gold-yellow roasted bulbs and on it strewn Paprikapowder - this is the first step for most courts of the Hungarian kitchen. With this begins  Hungarian stew and pottage. If Hungarian paprikapowder is available, one can prepare these meals everywhere.


Why could salami (Pick) become the perhaps most famous product from Hungary? Thanks to the singular raw material, the singular spices and the careful technology. The classical salami does not contain a paprika. Nowadays there are more variants with paprika, ginger and other spices, sometimes even with beef on the market. The Hungarian salami has two world-famous sorts: the 1869 born PICK and since 1888 after another prescription, but with similar technology manufactured HERZ.

The wine of Tokaj

These quality wines are pressed in the famous Tokaj wine area (in the triangle of Sátoraljaújhely, Abaújszántó and Tokaj). Those internationally well-known sorts like the Samorodner, the Furmint, the Lindenblaettrige and the Muskateller develop on a volcanic soil in a special mikroklima thanking to the tradition of centuries. The most famous speciality of this wine area is  the late vintage, the Aszú: (Vinum regum, rex vinorum),  king of the wines and wine of the kings.


Everywhere in the world one strives to lend to the liquor more taste and smell harmony. Also of the Unicum we cannot betray no more, than that it is a combination of herbs, which grow on Hungarian soil under local climatic conditions in pure distillate and for more than 200 years.


Vilmos Zsolnay developed its hard pottery manufactory in Pécs starting from center 19. Jh. with the help of its family members to a ceramic(s) factory of European rank. The architect Ödoen Lechner, the master of specifically Hungarian art nouveau, co-operated within the range structural ceramics (furnace tiles, roofing tile, front decoration) with them. Zsolnay invented also sucked. Pyrogranit, which proved as frost steady and could with colored glaze be covered. The most beautiful examples of it are to be seen in Budapest at the parliament and at the arts center, in Kecskemét at the city hall, in Debrecen at the hotel Aranybika and in Pécs at the Zsolnay Gedenkbrunnen.
