Informacja o organizacjiSzékelyudvarhely lies in the Southeastern part of the Transylvanian basin, by the river Nagyküküllő (Tarnava Mare), in county Harghita. It is bordered by several hills. The name of the town, as Udvarhely, was first mentioned at 1332 in a papal document. In 1558 Izabella Queen of Hungary gives the town the right for using its own seal and shield. Long time, until 1968, was the economical, political, educational and cultural center of the region. Now is the second most populated town of the county. Its total population, recording to the dates from 2011 national census, is of 34.256 inhabitants. What gives an unique character for the city is that a great majority (95,7%) of its population is Hungarian, so we can define this town as a little Hungarian isle in the great Romanian sea. The Hungarians which are living in the region are called “székely” (Sekler in German, it has no translation in English). This geographical, historical, cultural and demographical background made from this town a fast developing one, which was mostly kept its Hungarian character in the heart of Transylvania. The life of the town from Middle Age until now was concentrated in four main fields: education, economy, tourism, cultural life - including preservation of local traditions and the enlargement of the civil life.
