Everyone knows that Rubic Cube is Hungarian, and most of you probably knows that Wizz Air is also a Hungarian company. But what about Nanushka, Omorovicza or Prezi? Let's see some of the most appreciated Hungarian brands.
The Omorovicza journey began over 2,000 years ago, when the healing properties of Hungary's thermal waters were discovered and the first thermal baths were built, but let’s skip some years. At the turn of the millennium, Stephen de Heinrich de Omorovicza was living in Budapest when he first met US diplomat Margaret, Chief of Staff at the US Embassy in Hungary. Stephen fall in love with her, and at a point took Margaret to the bath his family built. The couple enjoyed and observed the healing power of these waters on their skin and decided to embark on a quest to harness its curative power...
Stephen and Margaret (and their team) incorporated the properties of the healing waters into a skincare range. Together, they developed and patented the Healing Concentrate™, a unique complex that is able to deliver the therapeutic minerals to the deepest layers of the skin.
Prezi is a Hungarian presentation software company founded in 2009, with offices in Budapest, San Francisco, and Riga. The word prezi is the short form of "presentation" in Hungarian. The company's flagship platform is a visual storytelling software alternative to traditional slide-based presentation formats.

It was said to be the major competitor of the market leader Microsoft Powerpoint
