For thousands of high school students this is the big day! Budapest is full of 18-year olds, dressed elegantly to say farewell to their old schools.
When it comes to “ballagás”, it is a very important day for the whole family. Parents, grandparents, cousins all come to this big event, bringing beautiful bouquets as a gift. The graduating students walk around their school with their classmates, singing and saying farewell to their classrooms.
This beautiful and emotional event is the first big step towards the future. It is The Moment of maturity, followed by their final exams at high school and moving towards college and university.
Congratulations and happy ballagás to you all!
