Mottó: „Hálóvetés nemzetközi vizeken”
A Szélrózsa nemzetközi résztvevőinek szeretnénk állandó programokat biztosítani. Megteremteni egy helyet, ami biztos pont lehet számukra, ahová bármikor betérhetnek információért, ahol garantáltan olyan programok várják őket, amit megértenek, amiben aktívan részt tudnak venni. A Nemzetközi Sátor célja továbbá egy olyan sziget létrehozása a Szélrózsán, ami lehetőséget nyújt a hazai és külföldi fiatalok, résztvevők ismerkedésére, a nemzetközi kapcsolatok ápolására, gyarapítására.

12th Szélrózsa Lutheran Youth Festival
Bük Hungary 25-29 July 2018
Szélrózsa has been the main youth event of the Lutheran Church in Hungary since 1996. Youths from different ages, places and beliefs meet each other for fun, friendship and faith and to experience community. It takes place in a different place every second year, and in 2018 it is held in the lovely town of Bük with around 1500-2000 participants. In Szélrózsa you can choose from a great variety of programs at the same time. The morning of each day is filled with prayers, discussions and workshops, while in the afternoon it is more about games, theater and concerts. Christian bands and famous Hungarian bands have concerts in the evenings. Throughout the day you can play, do sports, pray together, know more about church and mission, play music, talk about interesting topics, dance and party, and have fun.
Each Szélrózsa has invited international groups and individuals to enjoy the week together with Hungarians. Recently, we have had German, Austrian, Finnish, African, Italian groups and others as well. This summer we invite You to join us and make Szélrózsa even more international. The language of Szélrózsa is Hungarian, but there are programs and attractions in English. Also, there is the International Tent which is a place to get information, play games, participate programs in English and meet others from different parts of the world. It’s staff will also arrange trips, sight-seeing and outdoor activities.
Szélrózsa is probably the cheapest festival in Hungary. The daily ticket is for 3000 HUF (10 euros) and the weekly pass is only for 9000 HUF (30 euros) to get the full Szélrózsa experience. You can also order lunch for less than 4 euros. The Festival offers three different options for accommodation: 1. you bring your own tent for free 2. you sleep in a class room on sleeping mats of your own for 2 euros/night (there will be limited numbers) 3. you sleep in apartments of the town for around 10-15 euros/night (those are all high quality)
Registration starts on the 16th of April.
