SARAJEVO, January 21 (FENA) – Hungarian Ambassador to Bosnia and Herzegovina Krisztian Posa today presented the program of the Hungarian Culture Week in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which will be held from February 7 to May 9, in 10 BiH cities with total of 23 programs.
The Hungarian Culture Week in BiH is part of the celebration of the Hungarian Culture Day, which has been celebrated since 1989 in honor of the day when poet Ferenc Kölcsey completed the national anthem of Hungary in 1823.
Ambassador Posa reminded that this cultural project includes the entire Western Balkans, six countries in the region, and this, as he said, gives the opportunity to present the cultural heritage that is deeply rooted in European culture to all the culture aficionados in BiH.
“The goal of the Hungarian Culture Week is to present our country as a modern, creative country that is in line with contemporary cultural trends, but at the same time to show that our country respects, nurtures its traditional values, while also respecting cultural heritage of other nations,” said Ambassador Posa.
Given that Hungary is the honorary guest of the Sarajevo Winter Festival 2019, the Festival Director Ibrahim Spahić presented Ambassador Posa with an invitation for the opening of the Festival.
