In early 2012, the Korean Cultural Center opened its doors in Budapest, and the King Sejong Institute promoting the Korean language began its operations in Hungary. In 2019, the Center moved to the Margaret Island neighbourhood, a favourite with Budapest residents, and reopened its doors to the public in November, on the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Hungary and South Korea. The Korean Cultural Center in Hungary is the second largest of the 33 Korean cultural centers in the world and the largest in Europe. In addition to Korean language classes, the complex offers a wide range of free cultural experiences.

 

One inspiration - hangeul loved by Yoon Dong-ju

The Korean Cultural Center will join the Night of Museums 2022 with its exhibition titled One inspiration - hangeul loved by Yoon Dong-ju. From 5 pm to 10 pm, visitors can take part in programs related to the theme of the exhibition, the Korean alphabet, such as free guided tours, a calligraphy workshop, a handicraft workshop and a movie screening, as well as trying on traditional Korean costumes, hanbok. The programs are free to attend, but due to the limited number of places, pre-registration is required for guided tours and the film screening.
