Cultural Relations

Cultural and educational co-operation have always played an important role in Estonia-Hungary relations. From 1998 to 2024, the Estonian Institute operated in Budapest. Anyone interested in Estonian culture could obtain practical advice, as well as comprehensive cultural information from the institute. Every spring, the institute organized a weeklong series of events called “Estonian Days” in Hungary. In 1992, the Liszt Institute – Tallinn Hungarian Cultural Center started its activities in Estonia.

The Estonian-Hungarian Society has been active in Tallinn since 1990. Hungarians residing in Estonia established the Munkácsy Mihály Hungarians’ Association. There is an active Hungarian-Estonian Society in Budapest led by Honorary Consul András Bereczki.

Estonia and Hungary also have an exchange program for teachers and students. Estonian language lecturer works in Budapest at Loránd Eötvös Univerity, while a Hungarian language lecturer teaches at the University of Tartu.
