A casino in Mombasa, Kenya has incorporated baizes decorated with Hungarian motifs into their gaming tables.
The casino hired a young Hungarian man, Gergely, three years ago to manage the complex and he wasted no time in adopting Hungarian culture and traditions into the interior design of the building.
Gergely had been working on a cruise ships for five years before moving to Kenya, and once he arrived in Africa he soon got to work in making a home away from home.
“8-9 years ago, while I was living at home, I couldn't really appreciate how beautiful and rich my culture and traditions were. During the years I spent on the ship, I became more proud of my origin,” Gergely said.
Soon after they hired him, the company purchased another casino and entrusted Gergely with complete renovation, design and branding. “During this process, I came to the conclusion that it would be great to design casino baizes decorated with Hungarian traditional patterns. Thus I can introduce my culture to our guests,” he said.
