22 January, the Day of Hungarian Culture
We have been celebrating the Day of Hungarian Culture on 22 January since 1989 in memory of Ferenc Kölcsey.
The poet finalized the manuscript of the Hungarian national anthem on this day in 1823.
The commemorations related to the anniversary provide an occasion to pay more attention to our millennial traditions, to our roots, to the strengthening of our national identity as well as to demonstrate and to transfer the factual and intellectual values that invoke our past to the next generation.
