Nothing is more heartwarming than when two country’s culture meet as one to celebrate its past and present.

For those who had the chance to be present at the not so long ago evening gala surely will  remember the lovely melodies and grand artist performers who gave so much delightful enjoyment to the Chinese and Hungarian guests and visitors.  Watching and hearing the awesome piece of art  from the far-far-away country’s traditional culture was simply superb.
