Sándor Petőfi is one of the most famous and beloved Hungarian poets. Throughout 2023, large-scale celebrations are held around the country, commemorating the 200th anniversary of his birth. From school events to state commemorations, from rural exhibitions to major museum exhibits in the capital, everything, everywhere is about Petőfi.

On this occasion, the Liszt Institute Hungarian Cultural Center network, including 26 centers around the globe, are also holding numerous events. One outstanding example of this is the short, animated series we made. The series went viral on Chinese social media, and was presented in various museums and galleries in 5 major cities in China, including Beijing, Guangzhou, Nanjing, Tianjin and Chongqing.
