A Commemorative Exhibition celebrating the 1912 Budapest-Constantinople Touring Race, which was originally shown in Istanbul, before moving to Bucharest is now available for viewing at the Hungarian Institute in Sofia!
Under the patronage of the Ministry of Transport, Information Technology and Communications the Hungarian Institute in Sofia opened its commemorative exhibition on the 1912 Budapest-Constantinapole automobile touring race.
Angel Popov, Deputy Minister and Tekla Borosne Harangozo, Bulgarian ambassador of Hungary opened the exhibition together with dr Gábor Zsigmond, deputy director of the Hungarian Museum of Transport, Science and Technology and Nikolay Koruderliee, head of a local classic car club. Dr Pal Negyesi, curator of the exhibition, held a guided tour.
As a nice touch, contemporary reports from the Bulgarian press were collected and put on the wall. The Hungarian Institute plans to bring the exhibition to all the cities in Bulgarian where the tour stopped in 1912!
