Vörösmarty at the Library of the Academy

We re-open for one night our recent exhibition of Mihály Vörösmarty’s heritage at the Library of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. Our colleagues will guide you through the building and get you to places that are usually closed for visitors.

Explore our virtual library, write drinking songs with us, try your craftsmanship at our handicraft sessions or simply enjoy the beautiful poetry of Vörösmarty.
