The decision was made by the Estonian Institute in Tallinn, of which the Budapest institute is a subsidiary, for structural reasons, the statement said.

The Estonian Institute in Budapest was opened on February 27, 1998, and has hosted many events presenting Estonian culture to Hungarian audiences both in Budapest and other Hungarian cities.

Also, the institute has provided information about Estonia and promoted the teaching of the Estonian language in Hungary.

The institute’s library will be transferred to the Finno-Ugric Department at ELTE university, while its archives will be taken over by the Estonian embassy in Budapest.
