Welcome to the site of the Hungarian Cultural Days of Cluj! We aim the following with this event:
To celebrate the establishment of the city
On 19 August 1316, Charles I of Hungary restores the privileges and confers the title of “city” (civitas) to Cluj.
To celebrate the establishment of the Hungarian state and St. Stephen’s day
The Hungarian Cultural Days of Cluj are organized around 20 August, therefore they offer an excellent opportunity to celebrate this important day in the life of the Hungarians within the framework of a special annual event.
To organize the meeting of the Hungarian community of Cluj and that of the thousands who have emigrated from Cluj, in order to build up a strong sense of community.
Cluj, the historical and cultural capital of Transylvania, wishes to directly address those who have left the city, and once a year waits for them in order to celebrate together at this event and to strengthen the sense of community.
To present the culture of the Hungarians from Transylvania and to establish relationships with domestic and foreign cities and localities.
The role of Cluj in the history and present of the Hungarians from Transylvania and from the Carpathian Basin is indisputable. The Hungarian Cultural Days of Cluj offer an excellent opportunity to present the Hungarian cultural life of the city. Many guests from Transylvania and abroad are expected here in order to establish and develop lively relationships mediated by Cluj. The development of the existing relationships is also one of the main aims of the Hungarian Cultural Days of Cluj, an event destined to fill a gap in the life of Cluj.
To present the Hungarian culture to the majority population
Cluj, the cultural capital of Transylvania, is also home to the majority Romanian population. The Hungarian Cultural Days of Cluj offer a good opportunity to the Hungarian community to demonstrate its diversity and cultural values.
The event aims to realize a cultural dialogue and to strengthen other aspects of multiethnic coexistence.
