Navracsics called it a great honor that Hungary has been chosen as the guest of honor of the large-scale event. Hungary exhibits over 1,000 publications and organizes several special events during the fair, including theatrical and folk dance performances and culinary shows.
An exhibition entitled "Hungarians of World Fame" features objects of the permanent science history collection of the Hungarian National Museum.
For the first time, Smartegg, a Hungarian-invented brainteaser deemed as a successor to Rubik's Cube, was put on display in Russia. Smartegg won an award at an international exhibition of logical games in Washington last year.
The book fair features over 1,200 exhibitors from 27 countries; it is expected to attract 200,000 visitors.
