Balassijev inštitut otvoritev


Dear Guests,

the Balassi Institute – Cultural Centre of the Embassy of Hungary opened its doors on Barvarska street 8, 1000 Ljubljana, in January 2016. Our main task is to deepen the good cultural and artistic relations between our countries, and to present Hungary’s cultural heritage as well as its contemporary artistic trends to the Slovene public. We would also like to bring the cultural values and heritage of the Hungarian national community living in Prekmurje region closer to the Slovenian capital.
By organizing a wide range of cultural events and presenting the greatest pieces of classical and contemporary Hungarian art, we strive to raise the attention of the Slovene public to the traditional and yet constantly renewing Hungarian cultural scene. Our goal is to promote cooperation between Hungarian and Slovene cultural professionals and to invite more and more Slovenes to our country so they have the possibility of discovering the richness of the Hungarian cultural and artistic scene themselves.
The institute, located in the heart of Ljubljana, provides the visitors with monthly programs: literary nights, film club, programs for children as well as concerts, exhibitions and scientific events. The Balassi Institute is constantly widening the range of its partners, with the aim to target the public with programs that bring our peoples closer. Our Facebook page contains up-to-date information about our programs and other Hungary-linked cultural events as well as some cultural and touristic information about Hungary.
Come and visit us at Barvarska steza 8, Ljubljana!
