Goal of the Activity

The goal was to introduce the international students to busójárás, the biggest carnival event in Hungary, and to spend a fun day filled with music and dance in the town of Mohács.


Perhaps one of the most unique traditions in Hungary is busójárás
Mohács, located about 200 km south of the capital, is the best-known Carnival location in Hungary. The six-day-long festival starts on the Thursday before Shrove Tuesday with the main parade held on Sunday afternoon. This tradition is acknowledged by UNESCO as Intangible Cultural Heritage, and the masquerades, folk music and dance performances, children’s activities, gastro events and handicraft fairs attract several thousand visitors.
