Azerbaijani Students of Central European University located in Budapest (Hungary) represented our culture at the International Cultural Festival held from January 17th till January 22nd. Azerbaijan was one of the thirty countries participating in the festival. As the result of our students' initiative and activity, pictures representing our national traditions, food and views of Baku became the part of the international stand organized at the central hall of the University for the entire festival week. At the main event of the festival students organized country stand decorated with pictures representing our culture, places of interest and beautiful nature; souvenirs, postcards, kelagai and other national symbols.

People from different countries attending the event had an opportunity to try our national food, such as gutabs, dolma, pakhlava, shekerbura, pomegranates, Azerbaijani tea with lemon, etc. The most noted was the fact that the students were in the national costumes. Moreover, national dance «Yuz bir», song «Reyhan» and presentation telling about reach cultural heritage of our country were demonstrated by the students.

We also have to note that national meals bozbash, levengi and plov were served at dormitory cafeteria as part of the national cuisine project. Bozbash gained the first place for the amount of servings and excellent feedback, levengi — the third. Moreover, Azerbaijani traditional and modern songs and mugam were put at cafeteria that day.
