Iranian artists in Hungarian Handicrafts Festival

The 31st Hungarian Handicrafts Festival opened at Buda Castle in Budapest on Friday with artists of nine foreign countries including Iran in attendance.

The festival with over 100 pavilions continues until Sunday and is attended for the first time by artists from Shiraz, who are making inlaid works and woodcarvings in the exhibition in addition to displaying their artworks.

Iran’s Ambassador to Hungary Gholamali Rajabi-Yazdi and Hungarian Ambassador in Tehran Janos Kovacs participated the inaugural ceremony wherein an Iranian artist performed traditional music.

During the visit, Iran’s envoy said in a meeting with director of the festival, Gabriela Igoarto, that such festivals are considered major steps in line with getting the Hungarians acquainted with Iran’s ancient and historical civilization.

Igoarto, for her part, welcomed Iran’s first-time presence in the festival, hoping that Iranian artists’ attendance in the event would help Hungarians get familiar with the country’s culture, and that they would participate in the next rounds of the festival, too.
