How We See the Finns? Exhibition: Museum of Ethnography

What does a Hungarian think about the Finns? What have shaped their way of thinking of the Finns? What does a Hungarian know about Finland and the culture of the nation?

There is a relationship between Hungary and Finland when it comes to the language. The Finno-Ugric relationship is discussed in the exhibition, and questions are asked as for example: “Why are the Finns so important to us, anyway?” The visitors are also presented what Hungarians choose to think is very typical Finnish.
