Dear Budapest residents, my friends!


The city is together! – proclaims this year’s Budapest Spring Festival. We have been waiting for this for a long time. To be together, to celebrate diverse culture and arts freely and to give a hug to our friends without fear.


So, let us feel liberated together and let the spring bustle begin! We are looking forward to the carefully chosen artistic programmes and the colourful cavalcade that the Budapest Spring Festival has been representing for over 40 years! You can browse the website of the festival or you can select an event randomly as each event promises a high-standard experience!


By nature, the Spring Festival is a series of events presenting classical productions. The ambitious repertoire has been retained this year, but the novelty of the series is that now the programmes more often address younger audiences.


Last year’s anniversary programme was forced onto the online space due to the pandemic, so let us seize each minute to enrich ourselves with shared experiences!


Let us enjoy the Budapest Spring Festival together!


Happy spring Budapest!
