Budapest, August 17 (MTI) – The Saint Ladislaus (László) memorial year will start on January 1 next year, the state secretary for nation policy said on Wednesday.

The memorial year will mark the 940th anniversary of Saint Ladislaus becoming the knight-king of Hungary and the 825th anniversary of his canonisation, János Árpád Potápi said.

Ladislaus was the first ruler from the House of Arpad who linked central European peoples, so Hungary expects that Croatian, Polish, Romanian and Slovak civil organisations, churches and politicians will also get involved in the planned series of events, he added.
