Hungary’s biggest festival of the year is set to get underway in March. The annual Spring Festival brings together the very best in classical, opera, jazz and folk music, as well as theatre performances and film screenings.
The Spring Festival was first held in 1980 and has since grown into one of Europe’s key cultural events. In 2005 it won the European Culture Award and is going from strength to strength annually.
