Hungarian House in London to be established in the UK
The Hungarian government has purchased a seven-story building next to Trafalgar Square to become the Hungarian House of London.
In a video post on Sunday, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said that the building will also house a weekend Hungarian school and a theater, where exhibitions and performances will be held for local Hungarians.
The minister said that there are many Hungarians living, working and studying in London and its surroundings, but until now the city has not been a truly worthy home for Hungarian culture, the Hungarian community and the preservation of Hungarian identity.
The cabinet has now purchased a large, iconic building to preserve and present Hungarian culture in London in a place worthy of Hungary, Szijjártó said.
He stressed that the new Hungarian House will be a new meeting point for Hungarians living in England.
