Decorative travel poster from the late 1950s by Pál Szücs. The poster advertises a commonly known Hungarian holiday resort, Agárd that lies next to the Lake Velence. It is an hour away from Budapest, which makes it an extremely popular destination in the summer.

This is a colourful and spectacular piece in a quite modernist character. The simple, geometric shapes and the cartoon-like portrayal contributes to a highly fresh design, compared to the fact that it was created in the 1950s.
