XXIII. International Folklore Festival in Neringa
Our Cifra team was lucky to get the invitation to take part in the XXIII. International Folklore Festival in Neringa. It was our first time to visit Lithuania, but hopefully not the last one. The host and all of the participants were very nice and welcoming, so we had such a pleasant time in the beautiful Neringa. We managed to show the Hungarian virtus to the local people with the help of our dance and music performance, and also meet new traditions. In addition to the wonderful cultural programs, we had some free time to enjoy the local beach and the beautiful nature surrounding us.
All in all it was a pure joy to start our summer programs after the current hardships all around the world. We are hoping that our new relationships will remain in the future and we can make more and more cultural programs like this festival was.

Cifra Műhely was honored to being invited to The Third Western China Spring of Budapest event. It was a pleasure for us to accept the invitation. We started off our journey with 4 pairs of dancers and 5 musicians on 21st May. We travelled through Helsinki to an enormous city – Chongqing.
We were invited to represent our colorful culture at the International Documentary Film Festival in Brussels in 2016. We performed traditional dances for the audience and also organized a booth for Hungarian gastronomy. Of course we brought our instruments to play live music for the visitors. The atmosphere was amazing! It was a pleasure to be there!
We visited Bukarest in 2016. On March 12th we opened our exhibition in the Peasant Museum where the Cifra Room was held. The visitors could see it for a month. However, we didn’t bring the furniture exhibition only, we also organized dances, gastronomy shows, handcraft workshops. The sponsors of the gastronomy show were the famous Kométa company, Gere Tamás & Zsolt Winery and Deé Winery.
