Hussar Day at the Skanzen (Huszáros Nap a Skanzenben) – March 15


On our national holiday, March 15th, the Skanzen will be populated by hussars, offering an engaging and educational experience for visitors of all ages. Young hussars can learn about the youths of March 15th, test their knowledge at the “training school,” and even enlist during the musical recruitment dance. Meanwhile, the adult hussars, adorned in period uniforms, will showcase the skills of the former cavalrymen through parade demonstrations and skill games.
