Székely Nemzeti Museum

The Székely Nemzeti Museum is open to the public since 1875. This significant academic institution undertook the research and presentation of the Sekler and Transylvanian regions heritage.

At the moment this is the largest collection in Transylvania. The building complex currently gives place to a library, a natural sciences department, a history and archeology department and an ethnography department. The largest mushroom collection in Romania can be viewed here, as well as more than 23,000 pieces of the Diószeghy László`s butterfly collection.
Excluding the internal departments of the institutions, other departments also belong to them, such as the gallery of Sfântu Gheorghe (in Hungarian: Sepsiszentgyörgy) (the Gyárfás Jenő Gallery provide professional warehouse and exhibition space to the 19-20. century paintings, sculptures and graphic works), and the external units of the museums of Kézdivásárhely, Csernáton, Barót and Zabola.

Háromszék Dance Ensemble

Collecting, preserving, sharing and presenting the artistic value of the Transylvanian folk music and folk dance culture are the main objective of the Háromszék Dance Ensemble. The ensemble is not only promoting the Hungarian dances by theatrical performances, but also by taking the dances among the people, to the crowd. From the 2001-2002`s season the Háromszék Dance Ensemble in cooperation with the Lajtha László Foundation and the Kónya Ádám Cultural House revived the Sfântu Gheorghe (in Hungarian: Sepsiszentgyörgy) dance club. The Városi Cultural House`s hall gives place to it.
The basic idea is similar to the Kommandó Cigányfolklór Camp. The annual event was born with the aim to provide an insight into the lives of the gypsy`s culture and everyday life.

MAGMA Contemporary Art Space

Magma is acting in two directions. On the one hand, it is boiling, forming under the surface, on the other hand, it comes to the surface from time to time, erupting. Niklas Luhman’s description of autopoetic may be considered as valid as the (self)-definition of being a collective action. Magma is autopoetic in the sense that it perpetually sustains, resuscitates itself, without considering any kind of formal or thematic restriction. Paradoxically, however, it cannot be perceived as a circular gesture, originating from and returning to itself. It is rather a collective manifestation of a self-functioning unit. In the following we offer a presentation of consecutive eruptions, which trace the movement of Magma, led by Ágnes Evelin Kispál, Barnabás Vetró and Attila Kispál.

Andrei Mureşanu Theatre


The Andrei Mureşanu Theatre is a public institution providing fun and joy, and the main organizer of cultural events in the area for the Romanian minority. From 1992 the theatre separated itself from the Tamási Áron Theatre. Despite the fact that the two institutions still use the same building, from 1992 they are two independent institutions, they operate with their own team, and with different cultural strategy.

The Andrei Muresanu Theatre offers the audience classic and universal Romanian literary assemblies and contemporary pieces, and the team is open to the theatrical performances that are currently in trend (dance performances, visual theater, performance LEDs, happenings, workshops, etc.). The theatre was invited in 2010 to the Varna Summer International Theatre Festival, in Bulgaria, where they performed the “Lucia skates” piece, directed by Radu Afrim.
