COMMUNIST BULGARIA GOES TO HUNGARY

Dozens of Hungarians converged in the exhibition space of the 10 Eötvös Street Cultural Center in downtown Budapest for the opening of the Communist Bulgaria photography exhibition by Anthony Georgieff, on 5 March. They were joined by some Bulgarians in Budapest, including the Bulgarian Ambassador, Ulyana Bogdanska. The exhibition, exploring Bulgaria's Communist-era heritage, was introduced by the writer, Viktor Horvath. Jazz musicians Gábor Weisz and Támas Kovács provided the audio background. The mayor of Budapest sent special greetings to the exhibition goers.

Regarded as pinnacles of human imagination and dexterity, ancient sites such as the Parthenon, the Great Wall and Stonehenge get scores of tourists and are a source of pride for their home countries. Abandoned modern housing projects, hospitals and factories, however, are perceived as eyesores and as signs of bad planning, bad economic or political luck, a tragedy even. They are not the things a tourist authority includes in its promotional materials.
