Hungarian Heritage House

The Hungarian Heritage House is a national institution founded in 2001 by the Secretary of State for the Ministry of Cultural Heritage with the purpose of preserving and promoting Hungarian folk tradition. The HHH welcomes all enquiries, and aims to meet all requests in connection with Hungarian folk tradition.

The Carpathian Basin has always been a multi-national and therefore a multi-cultural region. Since these traditional cultures – including music – used to live together, we can regard it as one unit: a colourful, vivid and powerful whole involving Hungarian, Rumanian, Swabian, Gipsy and Slavic melodies, instruments and rhythms.

The traditional folk culture of Hungary and its neighbouring countries as well as their ethnic groups has always provided a fertile ground for studying intangible cultural heritage and has always been able to fill the soul with energy.
