From the European Parliament's Palace of Europe, to the Court of Human Rights, discover the works of art that are part of the European district of Strasbourg.

Hungary's National Holiday

On August 20th, 1000, Saint Stephen I of Hungary (Szent István), founded the Christian Kingdom of Hungary after he vanquished a revolt of the pagan Magyar aristocracy. He imposed Christianity in Hungary, although at times it came at the cost of heavy fighting against Hungarian pagan followers of shamanism.
On this National Holiday, one can admire the river and air parade on the Danube or the procession that carries the Holy Dextre, the national relic in the neighborhood of St: Stephen's Basilica, where some people often dress in folk costume.
