Culture Local News

The Székely Festival dedicated to Szekler gastronomy, handcrafts and music will return to Budapest after a two-year hiatus from Friday to Sunday, Finance Minister Mihály Varga said. Varga told journalists that the event strengthened economic cooperation between Szekler Land and Hungary, with some 150 Transylvanian businesses getting a chance to present themselves in Budapest’s Millenáris Park. Following a two-year hiatus caused by the coronavirus pandemic, visitors can once again experience Szekler hospitality and learn about the treasures of Szekler Land, Varga said. The revival of person-to-person ties is much needed after the pandemic, he added, noting that Tusványos, a large intellectual meeting of the Carpathian Basin, is scheduled to be held between July 19 and 24 this year.
