WELCOME | Editor’s

WELCOME | Editor’s Letter Spring Fever April sees spring in full swing, with the cultural offer of the city in bloom along with the cherry trees, as Budapest Spring Festival and Budapest Art Week provide plenty of programs (see p.4-5). See our seasonal tips to get fresh market produce and outdoor exercise (see p.10 and p.18). Take advantage of the city’s location and enjoy long walks in the Buda hills or opt for indoor entertainment in one of Budapest’s excellent music venues (see our Feature on p.8). Make the most of whimsical April days interspersed with bursts of spring beauty in Budapest’s gorgeous spots, atmospheric bathhouses or bustling downtown joints. As a side note, ripples of election fever can be expected to run through the city as April the 8th sees General Elections.

HOT DATES | APRIL SUNDAY - MONDAY 1&2 WEDNESDAY-FRIDAY 4-13 TITANIC FILM FESTIVAL ▲ A festival dedicated to films strictly outside mainstream, Titanic has been the point of access for many international, award-winning pieces to Budapest audiences since 1993. You are safe to rely on the selection, be it a music documentary on Native Americans in the industry Rumble, the story of a boozy samurai Samurai Rauni, or headliner Loving, a tale of interracial love. With sections such as Asian Winds or Dark Side, Titanic offers eyeopening screenings. All films are shown in their original languages, with English and Hungarian subtitles. www.titanicfilmfest.hu PHOTO: CENTER RIGHT — ANDREJ USPENSK EASTER ▲ The month begins with the Christian holiday of Easter and related pagan rites of fertility, still alive and kicking in Hungary. According to custom, boys visit girls on Easter Monday, sprinkle them with eau de toilette – a toned-down and safer version than the traditional drenching with icecold water – which the girls reward with decorated eggs. If you want to see the art of egg-decoration, head to PONT Festival on Sunday, and if you wish to participate in the religious aspect, go to one of the city’s many churches. www.pontfesztival.hu, St. Stephen’s Basilica Map D5 TUESDAY & WEDNESDAY 17&18 WAYNE MCGREGOR ↔ SATURDAY & SUNDAY 7-8 SAKURA → Visit the inner city botanical garden Füvészkert to appreciate the blossoming cherry trees. Immortalized as the battle ground of two gangs in youth novel The Paul Street Boys, Füvészkert is not only legendary, but a rightful gem in dense district VIII. Enjoy the park on both days and bring picnic accessories.
