Europe Day celebrated

May 14, 2018

On the 14th anniversary of Hungary's accession to the European Union, a day-long festival was held in Budapest this Sunday. It was for the fifth time that a running race also took place - this time, the distance was 14 kilometers.

Speaking on Szabadság tér in downtown budapest, deputy state secretary in the Prime Minister's Office, Péter Balázs Molnár said Hungarians have a lot to celebrate because the country spent half of the 28 years that have passed since 1990 [the year of the first free elections in the second half of the 20th century.]

He stressed that it is an important milestone in the history of the country, pointing out that EU membership enjoys big support among the Hungarian population.
