The Hungarian Parliament Building (Hungarian: Országház, Hungarian pronunciation: [ˈorsaːɡhaːz], which translates to House of the Country or House of the Nation) is the seat of the National Assembly of Hungary, one of Europe‘s oldest legislative buildings, a notable landmark of Hungary and a popular tourist destination of Budapest.

On 25 November 1953, an international football match was played between Hungary and England. Hungary won 6–3; England were shown to be technically and tactically inferior to the Hungarian side. The result led to a review of the tactics used by the England team, and the subsequent adoption of continental practices at an international and club level in the British game.
The Hungarian team of the 50’s played a major influence in the tactics used by Jock Stein to lead Celtic to the 1967 European Club and right his name in history as the first manager to lead a British team to the trophy and in the words of Bill Shankly make him “Immortal”.
The Shoes on the Danube Promenade is a memorial concept by film director Can Togay and was created by him and the sculptor Gyula Pauer on the bank of the Danube River in Budapest. It honors the Jews who were killed by fascist Arrow Cross militiamen in Budapest during World War II. They were ordered to take off their shoes, and were shot at the edge of the water so that their bodies fell into the river and were carried away. It represents their shoes left behind on the bank.
