Our summer destination was Budapest the capital of Hungary, one of the most beautiful capitals of Europe with a flavor of art deco architecture. We paid a visit to the Budapesti Történeti Múzeum (Budapest History Museum) which is inside the palace of Budapest. One of the permanent exhibitions includes “Budapest in the Modern Age” which highlights the birth and development of Budapest. Guests may explore the city and how it came to be, its economy, the ephemeral life of its citizens and its officers. A large section of the exhibition revolves around the art of typography, with newspapers, posters, contracts, even citizen lists of the past centuries. A well organized exhibition which gives you an insight about the typographic culture of Budapest.
