Travel to Budapest with Dr. and Mrs. Ivany
UST President Dr. Robert Ivany and Marianne Ivany invite the UST community to explore Budapest, Hungary, for the Fifth Annual President’s Tour scheduled for Sept. 20-28. Budapest is one of Europe’s most beautiful and historic cities. Guests will discover the music, art and architecture of this capital city that is divided by the fabled Danube River.

Dean Dalton, the voice of classical music at KUHF Radio, and his wife, Zsófia, a native Hungarian, organized the tour. Professors from Pázmány Péter Catholic University will host two half-day tours, highlighting the rich history of Hungary, including visits to the magnificent St. Stephen's Cathedral, Kossuth Square, sites of the 1956 Revolution, and the impressive Parliament building. The group will also attend a private recital, A Musical History of Hungary, performed by Dr. Alex Szilasi. Other stops include an18th-century palace, a trip to the wine-growing area of Eger and an all-day cruise up the Danube by riverboat to Visegrád, Esztergom and Szentendre. Three musical performances at the Hungarian National Opera House and the new Béla Bartók Concert Hall are also on the agenda.
