The Kodály Institute organises a series of daytrips around Hungary every year for the new students. The trips take them to places which have musical, historical or ethnograpical significance and which are more difficult to visit on individual trips. During the week students acquire a historic and geographic overview of Hungary, while also learning a lot about customs and traditions here.
The visited sights this year were very colourful and covered most regions of the country. Just to mention a few: Historical Memorial Park of Ópusztaszer with a horse show, the first Benedictine Monastery of Hungary in Pannonhalma, the magnificent Eszterházy Palace in Fertőd, the world famous Herend Porcelanium (porcelain manufacture and museum), and one of the paprika capitals of Hungary, Kalocsa, also famous for its embroidery.
