At the headquarters of the Cervantes Institute in Budapest, participants in the event highlighted Cuba’s values and traditions and recalled that the National Anthem was sung for the first time, 153 years ago, in the city of Bayamo, in eastern Cuba.
During her speech, Cuban Ambassador Alicia Corredera highlighted the relevance of that historic event, which took place ten days after the beginning of wars of independence in Cuba.
For his part, Institute Javier Valdivielso said that celebrating Cuba’s Culture Day is of great importance for the institution.

Ambassadors from Latin America and Spain, businesspeople, cultural promoters, mayors of other cities and Hungarian graduates from Cuban educational centers also attended the event.
