Hungarian cultural institute opens in Transylvania
A new Hungarian cultural institute will be opened by the undersecretary of the Ministry of Education and Culture in Sfantu Gheorghe (Sepsiszentgyörgy), the director of the institution said on Tuesday.
Katalin Bogyai will open the Cultural Co-ordination Centre on Wednesday, two years after the institute was completed, said Miklós Hadnagy. The center’s operation was delayed due to the ratification of a necessary bilateral agreement by Romanian parliament, which happened in May this year.
The cultural centre in Sfantu Gheorghe (Sepsiszentgyörgy) will be a branch of a similar organisation in Bucharest, but its activities will differ considerably, due to the fact that the majority of Sfantu Gheorghe residents are ethnic Hungarians, Hadnagy said. The center’s main task will be cultural co-ordination between the Hungarians living in the Carpathian basin, he added. (english.mti.hu)
