“ReConnect Hungary is an exceptional opportunity to discover aspects of your past with others who have similar roots. The best part is the connections and community you build with other participants, guides and people in Hungary.
I loved exploring the streets of Hungary and getting lost with the comfort of having experienced local guides. The diaspora has redistributed Hungarians all around the World, and parts of our Hungarian identities were left behind. If people are willing to learn and discover more about those that came before, they will learn what an extraordinary place Hungary is becoming. ReConnect Hungary is the most effective program to empower young people to start forming the community and then to remain involved.”

My whole life I felt like we were missing pieces to our Hungarian heritage. The only things passed down through the generations were the food and some family stories. After this trip, I feel like I got to fill in those gaps. I have a better sense of what it means to be Hungarian-American and I feel a stronger connection to my great grandfather.This experience
