What does 20th of August mean for Hungarians? What is this holiday about?

On August 20th, we celebrate the Hungarian state foundation, which can be seen for about 1000 years. The founding of the state is linked to the name of King Stephen King who, after centuries of paganism, transformed Hungary into a Christian state. On this basis, on August 20, we celebrate the founding of the state and honor the memory of King Stephen. (This day is one of the highlighted festivals for the Hungarian Catholic Church as István is also our first Hungarian patron saint.)

Those who arrive from Hungary on August 20 will be able to see the capital in a festive glory and receive a slice of Hungarian culture. On this day, many festivals await celebrities at various points of the city. Variety and exciting cultural programs, specialty festivals, concerts, shows and concerts can be chosen by a visitor to culture or entertainment.

The evening is closed by a magnificent fireworks displaying people from different parts of the country.


In Hungary, and even in cross-border Hungarian communities, for example in Transylvania, the blessing or slicing of bread is part of the celebration, so this day is also called the Day of New Bread. During the history, this holiday has been changed several times, some rulers have been celebrated on holidays, while others have abolished it. After the end of communism, its current "form" has remained, since then the official ceremony starts with the lifting of the Hungarian flag on Kossuth Square, next to Parliament, followed by craft exhibitions and parades. On this day, more prizes will be awarded, just like St. Stephen's Prize, which can be received by people who have done a prominent activity for the Hungarians. At the end of the ceremony, the Hungarian State celebrated the fireworks in Budapest and in many parts of the country. Fireworks can be admired from most parts of Budapest, but the most beautiful view of the Danube and its hiding places.
