Inauguration of a Memorial Wall in Copenhagen on the occasion of the 100 years anniversary of Hungarian-Danish diplomatic relations

The Embassy of Hungary in Copenhagen commemorated the 100th anniversary of the establishment of Hungarian-Danish diplomatic relations with a series of events. Former Hungarian Ambassadors who served in Copenhagen before, commemorated the diplomatic relations between the two countries in a short film, a plaque representing the bilateral bonds was designed, and a memorial wall representing the last 100 years was also unveiled.

As a time travel experience, the current Ambassador of Hungary in Copenhagen, Kristóf Altusz, accompanied by some of his predecessors, who had also served as Head of Mission to the Kingdom of Denmark, shared their thoughts and reflected on the bilateral relations in video messages. This was gathered in a short film that highlighted the tireless efforts and contributions of our Ambassadors in developing our bonds into prosperous and dynamic relations. Two pieces of memorial plaques were designed on the occasion of the centenary. Her Majesty Queen Margrethe II. of Denmark is to receive one of them, while the other will be on display at our Embassy in Copenhagen. The plaques combining traces of the Hungarian Rubik's Cube and Danish Lego not only unites the colors of the national flags of the two countries, but also symbolizes the need to build (Lego) and intellectually enrich (Rubik's Cube) bilateral relations at the same time. In the conclusion of the commemoration, Ambassador Kristóf Altusz, together with Carsten Grønbech-Jensen, State Secretary for Foreign Affairs, inaugurated a memorial wall in the building of the Hungarian Embassy, which guides the spectators through the most notable developments and events of the past 100 years of diplomatic relations, enriched with a gallery of archive photos.
