In front of the house of Layosh Koshout in Vidin
Every year around March 15, when the National Day of Hungary is celebrated, the memory of revolutionary Lajos Koshout is celebrated in Vidin. In front of the house, where he lived three months, many people gathered, representatives of the institutions and the Vidin Metropolis. Her Excellency Ms. Tekla Harangozo, Ambassador of Hungary to Bulgaria, briefly spoke about the importance of the Hungarian Revolution of 1848 and its leaders for the freedom of independence of Hungary, mentioning the names of Shandor Petyofi and Lajos Koshout. Her Excellency Ms. Tekla Harangozo was accompanied by Zoltan Horvat, Deputy Head of Mission, Chaba Balaj, Consul and Lt Colonel Zoltan Coca, a military and air attack attache (from the Hungarian Embassy in Bucharest).
After the defeat of the Hungarian Revolution, Koshout, along with about 6,000 of his associates in 1850, crossed the border with the Ottoman Empire and settled in Vidin, Shumen and Kutahiah (Asia Minor). His family joined him, and in September 1851, with the help of the United States, Koshut traveled originally to France with the intention of crossing it on his way to England, but did not get permission from Napoleon III, then went to Gibraltar to England where he spent three months and then for America. Everywhere he is solemnly welcomed as a fighter for freedom and democracy, and his meeting with Abraham Lincoln is specially organized, as Lincoln calls him "the most worthy and prominent representative of the cause of civil and religious freedom on the continent of Europe."
A comment on the life and activity of Koshut was given by Ognian Tsenkov, mayor of Vidin Municipality.
In front of the memorial plaque of the great Hungarian revolutionary, wreaths and flowers were laid in recognition.
