The President of the Republic, Katalin Novak, will also take part in the largest religious and pilgrimage event in the Carpathian Basin.

Three pilgrim trains from Hungary transport the faithful to Csíksomlyo, the Blessed Virgin Mary’s pilgrim train arrived on Friday morning with 900 passengers on board. The combined train of the Csíksomlyó Express and Székely fast passed through Nagyvárad at noon with 2,500 passengers on board, where former Reformed bishop László Tőkés welcomed them and said blessing, accompanied by local Hungarians.

The train, which arrived half an hour late, was also waiting for a large crowd in Cluj-Napoca in the afternoon, and was greeted with a folk dance and musical show at the railway station, which was packed due to traffic on Friday, organized by the Hungarian Democratic Federation of Romania (RMDSZ).
