My Dear Esteemed Friend!

from 12. 5. 2017 to 15. 10. 2017

The exhibition is one of the key projects implemented within the framework of the commemoration of the Year of Arany launched on the 200th anniversary of the birth of the renowned Hungarian poet János Arany. During the memorial year, numerous events were held in the countries, where this important poet worked and left a lasting footprint – in Hungary, Romania and Slovakia. The exhibition presents a collection of letters exchanged by János Arany and Imre Madách, proving the friendship of the two giants of Hungarian literature, documenting their meetings in Budapest and Dolná Strehová, and describing their common wanderings and providing general insight into the life of the two poets as well as that of contemporary society. The exhibition was prepared in cooperation with Slovak and Hungarian institutions.
