There are numerous cultural institutes in Sofia and some of them have been active for more than 40 years. The Hungarian cultural institute is one example. Our countries have been in close relation since Communist times, exchanging experts and knowledge in many fields. That was how my parents went to work in Budapest during the Regime, so for me Hungary has always been very special.
The Hungarian institute in Sofia hosts various events like exhibitions, concerts, movies, literature evenings, book presentations, conferences, language courses. Additionally, people interested in Hungarian culture, art, movies, music or literature, can visit the institute in the opening hours.
