Freedom square

Day of Márton in Hungary. Comes from the Latin Martinus which means: like the god Mars.
szabadság tér
Szabadság tér (Freedom square). This is the soviet monument remembering the unknown soldiers died while they liberated/occupided (everyone can choose the right word after his/her political view)Hungary. The fence is around it because the rioters damaged the monument and now its not allowed to get there. The white building behind the monument is the Inter-Europa Bank and I guess they made a great job renovating that building. And in the distance you can see the roof of the parliament building. Actually this is the same square where Harry Hill's (not the Brittish comedian) statue is located.

--------------------------

Today is the last day of my quiz. Tomorrow we will know who gets the Szamos Marcipan.:) The last question is not easy at all. My surname is Bugarszki..(say: Bugarski)

What is the origin of the surname Bugarszki:

A, Its a Hungarian name which means: comes from Bugarszk
B, Its an old Polish surname
C, Its Macedono-Bulgarian name

The right answer to the previous question is: B, The Turul visible in the Palace of Buda
The taurus is a Greek symbol and the Lion is widely used on old buildings but the Turul (which is an eagle) is the ancient symbol.

Thank you for all to participate in my quiz and visit my site tomorrow to see the final results!:)

ce square avec cete statue est superbe, mais c'est bete pour un square de la liberté qu'il soit enferme et entoure.
Je vote C


this public garden with cete statue is superb, but it is stupid for a public garden of freedom that it is locks up and surrounds. I vote C

this is the type of photo that would have been very appropriate for my dp since its Veterans day - bless all veterans around the world!

great photo to commemorate Veteran's Day.

etymology of your surname is very difficult to find (but i see you're very popular in your field).

my wild guess is:
A, Its a Hungarian name which means: comes from Bugarszk

This was by far the most interesting quiz, as I always wondered why Hungary was the only country where the family names came first; Hungarian has linguistic relationships with some of the surrounding languages, I believe, but nobody else does that. After 3 hours of searching, I'm going blind, but I'll have to go with C. I saw a whole lot of you, Liv, Norbert and Miklos, as well as the protein chemist, that's for sure.

Jing's answer:

so about today's question.....really no ideas....:-? mmm...i choose A!!a Hungarian name :P ;;)

Olivier..its really stupid to surround it. Usually its not. But after the rioters destroyed it partly the police put the fence there.

Jazzy, Meg..I know the question is really hard today. But remember how simple was the first question:)

Kris..I am so sorry..today I had to wake up earlier..so I posted early

Meg Nakagawa said...

Kris, sorry, I meant, nobody else in the surrounds uses the family name first, despite the linguistic affiliations.

C?
Bug=Bulgarian?

Apparently the origin of the English "Bugger" is derived from Bulgarian.
