Friday, February 13, 2015

The festival was held in Szabadság square in Budapest last week.

The Mangalica (sometimes spelt Mangalitsa (USA) or Mangalitza (UK)) is a Hungarian breed of domestic pig. It was developed in the 19th century by cross-breeding the traditional Hungarian Bakonyi and Szalontai breeds with imported Sumadia pigs from Serbia. The Mangalitsa pig grows a thick hairy coat similar to that of a sheep. -wikipedia
