Taste Royal Wine

Hungary is known as the "Pearl on the Danube" and the scenery of the Danube in its capital Budapest is even more beautiful. In fact, Hungarian wine is worthy to be introduced - it plays an important role in Hungarian culture and is even mentioned in the national anthem.

At the exhibition area of the Hungarian Consulate, the Noble Rot Wines and Sangre de Tore, as well as the Royal Wine known as Hungarian "national drink" and from the hometown of Sissy Princess will be tasted by the public. However, wine-tasting needs careful study. Given it, the organizer will hold on-site wine culture popularization to introduce the knowledge about wine culture, and the method of drinking, identifying and saving the wine to people for free.

Performances and activities waiting for you

Each consulate will hold some performances and live experience activities at the ICIF. At the exhibition area of the Japanese Consulate General in Chongqing, there will be a taiko performance from Hiroshima, Japan. The ancient Japanese took taiko to drive away diseases. Nowadays taiko is the representative instrument in Japan. The taiko team showing at the ICIF was established in 1997. With 21-year history so far, it has performed in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Chengdu and other places.
