BUDAPEST, July 26 (Xinhua) -- A "Xinhua Gallery" photo exhibition, organized by China's Xinhua News Agency, opened here on Thursday to give Hungarians a closer look at China.

A selection of 31 stunning photographs taken by Xinhua photographers brought forth to visitors unique Chinese landscapes as well as natural and architectural wonders. It also covered some of the Chinese sites inscribed on the UNESCO's World Heritage List.

In the opening ceremony, Zhang Jin, a senior official of Xinhua News Agency, said that the exhibition was designed to showcase the splendors of Chinese scenery, culture and history to the Hungarian public.

"Our two countries have deep historical ties and this Xinhua exhibition can strengthen the bridge of communication between Hungary and China," he said, adding that "modern-day relations are also developing intensively on both economic and cultural fronts."

Zhang highlighted two of the exhibited photographs as examples of links between Hungary and China, which showed the landmark buildings in Shanghai designed by Hungarian architect Laszlo Ede Hudec.

"Hudec was a key figure in our common history," Zhang said.

Guo Xiaoguang, China's cultural attache in Hungary, lauded the exhibition, saying this "wonderful window will be open to the Hungarian public as well as the local Chinese community, and can provide an opportunity for Hungarians and Chinese people to better understand each other."

The Xinhua Gallery was supported by the Asia Center, a local commercial center hosting many businesses from China and elsewhere in Asia.
