(Re)sources for Intercultural Dialogue between Hungary and Greece
This article addresses the concept of preserving cultural heritage by looking at the flourishing historical and cultural links between Hungary and Byzantium and at their modern manifestations. Since the 1980s and 1990s both Hungary and Greece have organised intensive language and cultural education courses for foreign nationals and those with Hungarian and Greek ancestry to promote intercultural dialogue. In addition to discussing the historical bonds that date back millennia, this article also outlines the sources and resources used to maintain Hungarian and Greek cultural characteristics. It demonstrates some of the best practices of Greek language and culture programmes offered, which serve the notion of the continued survival and flourishment of European cultural heritage.
