The picturesque Bréda Castle in South East Hungary was lit up in the colours of ‘Y Draig Goch’ for St David's Day, as the sound of the Welsh national anthem filled the nearby woodlands.

In celebration of Patron St David, the Welsh flag 

The Welsh-Hungarian Cultural Association worked with local residents to arrange the light presentation, because of coronavirus restrictions no audience gathered to watch the display.

Instead, a virtual viewing of the light show was released on Youtube.

Magyar Cymru tweeted: Wales you always have a place here, Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Hapus, from your friends in southeast Hungary!”

Elizabeth Sillo, chairman of the organisation, said: “We wanted to send a message to our Welsh friends as they mark St David’s Day in an undoubtedly difficult year.

“We’d like everyone in Wales to know that there’s a place in Hungary where people have such admiration for their culture and where they are always welcome.

“Located in a remote part of the Great Hungarian Plain, close to the Romanian border, Breda Castle is best known as Europe’s first permanent projection mapping installation and so it gave locals the perfect opportunity to send their best wishes to Wales from afar.”
