Between July 23 and 28, the 30th Bálványos Summer University and Student Camp will take place in Tusnádfürdő (Băile Tușnad), in central Romania, with the customary keynote address by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán.
The main themes being explored this year are the future of Europe and Transylvania, Hungarian national unity and the change of political system 30 years ago, the organisers said at a press event in Csíkszereda (Miercurea Ciuc) late on Monday.
The event provides a forum for ethnic Hungarians to talk with each other as well as the many visitors from the Carpathian Basin, the Hungarian government and neighbouring countries, with guests from Slovakia, Croatia and Serbia as well as Hungary and Romania.
Orban will give a lecture on Saturday on the big stage together with László Tőkés, head of the Transylvanian Hungarian National Council. Fidesz lawmaker Zsolt Németh, the event’s founder and chairman of the Hungarian parliament’s foreign affairs committee, will moderate.
Also, podium discussions will be held to mark the 100th anniversary of the first world war and the Trianon Peace Treaty.
