Mangalica is a Genuine Hungarian pig. The Festival is organized by The Hungarian Association of Mangalica Breeders The Association (MOE).

The products, which made of Mangalica are healthy. The light cholesterol has a curative effect against heavy cholesterol in white pig. The composition of meat and bacon have also a curative effect on podagra. It is considered as a rare product in Hungary. This is the gap which MOE is trying to fill with the Mangalica products.
You may read more information about these products here.

The event will be in the Vajdahunyad Castle.

Ice Rink

Vajdahunyad Castle is situated in the City Park of Budapest, which I like very much not only in summer, but in winter too.
The Castle (which is visible in the background) was built for the Millenarian Exhibition in 1896 to represent the different architectural styles of Hungary. It is a copy in part of a castle in Transylvania, Romania, that is also called Vajdahunyad. Originally it was made from cardboard and wood, but it became so popular that it was rebuilt from stone and brick. Today it houses the Agricultural Museum. In the front there's an ice skating rink, which is one of the largest and oldest open air ice rinks in Europe. It is open to the public every day in the winter season.
