Subway Day: Blaha

Tonight's concert the Mookie Got Robbed show will take place very close to one of the main hubs in Budapest, Blaha Lujza tér (square), simply called "Blaha".
A mai koncertem, a Mookie Got Robbed show Budapest egyik fő csomópontjához, a Blahához, azaz a Blaha Lujza térhez nagyon közel lesz.

Lujza Blaha was a Hungarian singer and actress, called "the nation's nightingale".
Blaha Lujza magyar színésznő, énekesnő volt, a nemzet csalogányának nevezték.

She became a Permanent Member of the National Theater (Nemzeti Színház, that's what you can see on the photo), in 1901.
A Nemzeti Színház Örökös Tagja volt 1901-től.

You can see this display commemorating the grand dame of Hungarian theater at Blaha Lujza tér subway station, down by the tracks.
Ez a vitrin a magyar színház nagyasszonyának állít emléket, lenn a vágányoknál.

It is great that Hungary is celebrating its homegrown icon. And how great is it that they have a presentation inside the subway station.

Hi Andrea! Sorry for the absence, but I’ve been busy with my parents’ health; almost 180 years to care... ;)
Lovely to see that you keep at least posting once a month!!!

Blogtrotter is paying homage to Vilnius as European Capital of Culture 2009. Are you going to sing there? Hope you enjoy and have a great weekend!
