A List of Hungarian Villages...



...and the rough translations of their names in English.* A result of our recent adventures in Eastern Europe, guided by our friend Richard and his mom, Elizabeth. This should be all you need to know to tell whether we had a good time. And to form a favorable opinion of the Hungarian language and mindset.

Pogányszentpéter
Nagybajom
Almamellék
Kistolmács
Egérág
Csonkamindszent
Böszénfa
Görgeteg

Nyogér
Csepreg
English Translation
Pagan St. Peter
My Big Problem (or Monkey?)

Little Translator
Mouse Branch
Amputated All Saints
Abundant Coal Wood
(The) Rolling
Barely a Castle

Stay tuned for further details.
