National Poetry Day Programme - 11 April 2019, from 15:00 pm

11 April is National Poetry Day in Hungary when we celebrate poetry and remember great Hungarian poets. This year is the 100th year anniversary of the Hungarian poet and journalist Endre Ady’s death (22 November 1877 – 27 January 1919).  Reciting poems together in the garden of the main building has been a tradition at SZIU for years now and international students have been part of the programme since last year.

Everyone is welcome to attend the event. Come and watch your fellows' performance!
