The power of identity
Hungary’s more than one thousand years of history in the middle of Europe has shaped its culture as the most westernized of the nomadic cultures. In every second year the “Kurutaj” gives venue for the gathering of 27 nations from Eurasian region. This huge event provides excellent place for build personal connections during the 3 days festival.
The ITE had organized its own yurt – as place not only for accommodation but for “meet ups” as well. The name of the festival also reflects its aim: the word ” kurultaj ” and its variations in the Altaic languages (mostly of Turkic origin) translates as “meeting of the tribes”.
