We are the Hungarian community and friends. We are people who were born in Hungary, descended from Hungarians, or just interested in Hungarian culture.
Mi vagyunk a Christchurch-i magyar közösség. Néhányan Magyarországon születettünk, magyar származásúak vagyunk, vagy kötődünk a magyar kultúrához.
What do we do?
We gather to talk (in English and Hungarian), to eat, to celebrate, to remember, to watch Hungarian films, to learn Hungarian language, to dance, and to share our culture. Here are some highlights from 2013-2018.
Összegyűlünk, hogy beszélgessünk (magyarul és angolul), együnk, ünnepeljünk, emlékezzünk, magyar filmeket nézzünk, magyar nyelvet tanuljunk, táncoljunk, és megosszuk kultúránkat egymással és másokkal.
