About
        The Bulgarian Institute of Culture in Budapest was the first Bulgarian institute abroad ever, as well as the first foreign Institute of Culture in Hungary with more than 70 years of history. It was opened on 01.10.1936 within the Budapest University “Peter Pazman”. The first treaty on cooperation in the field of culture, involving its functions, was signed on 18.02.1941 in Sofia. In 1967 was signed an Inter-government Treaty on the statute and activity of the Bulgarian Institute of Culture in Budapest and of the Hungarian Institute in Sofia, which was renewed on 24.04.1980. A new Inter-government Treaty on the statute and the activity of the two institutes was signed in 2002. In 1995 the Bulgarian state purchased part of the property at 14, Andrashi Street in Budapest, where the Institute of Culture is currently located. It has two exhibition rooms – 45 sq. m and 86 sq. m, concert hall, conference room, library. There is an Art Gallery at the front of the facade.
        Over the years of its existence the aspect and the activities have changed from awakening national sentiments and purely educational in the beginning, to dispersion and propagation of Bulgarian culture and Bulgarian studies and to establishing a different type and forms of activities according to the new political and economic situation. The Institute’s activity is directed towards a complete presentation of the Republic of Bulgaria both in the field of foreign policy and European integration and in the economic and cultural life.
