Community centre renovated in Szeklerland with Hungarian support

A community centre, renovated with 50 million forints (EUR 160,000) of support from the Hungarian government, was inaugurated in Ghimes-Faget (Gyimesbükk), in central Romania, on Monday.

Addressing the inauguration ceremony, Miklós Soltész, Hungarian state secretary for church and ethnic minority affairs, thanked the local Csángó people for their loyalty to their home, to the nation, the Hungarian language, Hungarian culture and the preservation of their traditions.

The Hungarian government’s support for the renovation is a reward for this loyalty, he said, adding that it will be local residents’ task to fill the community centre.

The community centre was built in 1920 and had fallen into a state of ruin.
