Dear Guests,

welcome to the website of the Balassi Institute – Cultural Centre of the Embassy of Hungary.

Our Institute has opened its doors in the Slovene capital in January 2016. Our main task is to protect and to present Hungary’s cultural heritage to a broad audience as well as to deepen the good cultural and artistic relations between Hungary and Slovenia. Apart from that, the Institute promotes international cooperation on the field of culture and research and the study of Hungarian language. By organizing a wide range of cultural events, 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 evenings, film club and children’s programme 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.

We await you at Barvarska steza 8, Ljubljana!
