Children’s corner

The Embassy’s Open House Program was designed with children of all ages in mind. Children and their parents are welcome to participate in events including a balloon party, drawing and face painting.


Meet, Greet and Learn More About Hungarian Dog Breeds

It has become a tradition at our Embassy to host Hungarian breed dogs and their owners at the Open House. Hungarians are famous for their dog-loving culture, and we take great pride in the fact that some of our best friends originate from Hungary. This year’s featured dog is the Vizsla. The Hungarian, or “Magyar” Vizsla, is the smallest of the all-round pointer-retriever breeds and is known as an elite sporting dog and loyal companion.
