The Hungarian Embassy in Stockholm opened its doors for the third time this year as part of Stockholm's highly popular Kulturnatten (Culture Night) programme, welcoming more than 200 visitors with a colourful programme. 

On 20 April 2024, between 6pm and midnight, the 100-year-old Hungarian Embassy building hosted three sold-out events promoting Hungarian culture, science and talent. Following a lecture by psychologist and associate professor László Harmat on Music and the Flow Experience, the fantastic musicians of Trio Opus One, students of the Liszt Ferenc Liszt Academy of Music, performed in collaboration with the National Talent Centre, Olivér Kepes, pianist, Maryia Trepashka, violinist and Cseperke Donáczi, cellist, offered the guests an unforgettable experience with their captivating concert of works by Béla Bartók, Leos Janacek and Felix Mendelssohn. Afterwards, visitors were able to take a closer look at Béla Bartók's oeuvre through the indoor exhibition Mikrokozmos, in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. 

An outdoor exhibition of glass and mosaic works by the Art Nouveau and Art Deco artist Miksa Róth, entitled "Coloured Sunlight", was presented on the Embassy's fence, and everyone was offered a selfie opportunity. A mini statue of Mihály Kolodko Nobel on the Nobel Street side of the Embassy, erected by the Hungarian Embassy in Stockholm in 2021 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Swedish-Hungarian diplomatic relations. It is gratifying that the special programme of the Hungarian Embassy in Stockholm 2021, which is part of the popular programme series, attracted hundreds of Swedish visitors again this year, who left the event with uplifting experiences.
