Europe’s largest equestrian event has been attended by participants from 12 countries across Europe and Asia. In addition, 27 ethnic groups among them Turkish, Bulgarian, Uzbek, Azerbaijani, Kyrgyz, Kazakh, Mongolian, Turkmen, Uyghur, Bashkir, Tatar, Yakut, Chuvash and Balkar nationals marched under the Turanian flag.
Vice-president of the National Assembly Sándor Lezsák in his opening speech stressed that Kurultáj is the celebration of the cultural heritage of kindred nations. Its aim is to strengthen the sense of brotherhood among nations with common ancestry. The treasured knowledge we’ve accumulated throughout the centuries is our common heritage; we have to mobilize it so that all of us can benefit from it said Lezsák.
Several known intellectuals and experts of ancient history also attended the event among them Italian linguist Angela Marcantonio who gave a presentation on the origin of the Hungarian language.
