Topics: Introduction * Update * Legal affairs * Privacy and e-mail policy * Layout and technical data


The English versions of the "Szia Budapest" websites would not be realised without a very special meeting which Julius had on Friday June 10, 2011 during the Athe Sam Roma festival. On the terrace of the former Gödör Klub he fell into conversation with a French girl, Estelle, who lives with husband and kids in Londen. A unique "once in a lifetime" conversation which lasted 2 hours, and she gave, unintentional, Julius the strength to translate the main Dutch website.


Szia Budapest (English version):  founded in June / July 2011, the first pages of the English website are online since that date.

Layout and Specifications


The website has been tested with the latest versions of the browsers that were available in 2013. The site works, with minimal differences, well in the browsers Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera. Currently, the final differences between IE and other browsers are solved, but it's very difficult to do this.


The website is built on Windows Vista with a resolution of 1440 x 900, but also work in lower resolutions (up to 800 x 600) fine. The resolution provides 1024 x 768 a full screen website. At higher resolutions the font will less big. In lower resolutions you will also should scroll.


The colors white, red and green used in this website are virtually similar to the colors of the Hungarian flag. The picture of the logo of this website is taken on June 20, 2011. It's a part of the statue "Lány galambbal" - girl with dove - made by the sculptor Lajos Ungvári in 1962 and can be found in the XXII. district.


On this website almost consistently is spoken of "Julius" This is a conscious choice. Julius does not want to create a website on which constantly is to read "I", "me" and again "I" This is, in the eyes, again, by Julius, less comfortable about.


The layout of the website is kept as simple as possible. This with the philosophy that you, when visiting the website, are not waiting for music chosen by Julius, while you currently are listening to other, beautiful, music. The display of flashy videos, flash effects, etc. is  avoided when possible, it often distracts too much of the content of a site and not everyone has these functions enabled. Is, in your opinion, the layout of the website so boring, well, that is intentional.....
