Deltiology (from Greek δελτίον, deltion, diminuitive of δέλτος, deltos, "tablet, letter"; and -λογία, -logia) is the study and collection of postcards. Compared to philately, the iden- tification of a postcard's place and time of production can often be an impossible task because postcards, unlike stamps, are produced in a decentralised, unregulated manner. For this reason, some collectors choose to limit their acquisitions to cards by specific artists and publishers, or by time and location.

098 - Hungary

The building of the Hungarian Culture Foundation is located in the heart of the Buda Castle, near the Matthias Church and the Fishermen's Bastion. The house of the Foundation is an impressive palace of new gothic style, built in the early 20th century.
In the frameworks of its activities focusing on Hungarians living outside the country's borders, the Foundation fosters the broadening of cultural relationships among prominent Hungarian personalities and public living all over the world.
The central concept of the initiatives of the Foundation is the "meeting of regions". In this spirit we organize the Day of Hungarian Culture, the Cartoon Festival, the Smile-days of Buda, the Day of Poetry, the Days of Carpathian Basin, the Honey-days of Buda, and other events all year round.
The Hungarian Culture Foundation produces the financial sources for its mission through entrepreneurial work. Our magnificent setting is available to those who look for an ideal scene for a ball, a reception, a party, a conference, a training course, a concert, or a performance. In the ornate hall of our building, the Foundation arranges fine arts, business and trade exhibitions. This facility of great traditions also offers offices to let. Furthermore, the Foundation runs a 16-room two-star hotel with a family atmosphere. In the rooms of the Hotel Kulturinnov there are private showers, telephones and mini-bars. Room prices include buffet breakfast.
In the building of the Hungarian Culture Foundation are housed several restaurants, such as the Jankó Contemporary Hungarian Restaurant, the Matthias Restaurant, and Fortuna Restaurant; drink bars are also at our guests' service. In the Fortuna Passage, which belongs to the house of the Foundation, one can browse special shops such as Judit Józsa's Pure Source Gallery offering hand-made ceramics and sculptures, the Fortuna Antique Shop, as well as a Fashion Store. In the cellar of the building you can visit the House of Hungarian Wines, where you can taste the most famous wines of all 22 Hungarian wine-regions.
