First of May shows how the revolution dies

Park at the Moravian Square looks emptier than as usual. And also much older – as far as its visitors are concerned. One short look into the calendar and all surrounding sickles and hammers are explanations by itself. It´s the first of May – Communist Party of Bohemia and Moravia is celebrating International Labour Day.

The other face of the Szechenyi Baths

It's Saturday night on April 21st. The subway car that leads to the Szechenyi baths, in the heart of the Hungarian capital, is full of young people wanting to have fun and enjoy the night. Normally, people associate thermal baths with a quiet place to relax and forget about their worries for a few hours. And although fun is still the main attraction, this time people do not come precisely to relax.

Food from the trash? Why not
