Summary/Abstract: The diary written by the editor-in-chief and an editor of the journal “Korunk” records their traveling impressions of Serbia, where they have spent time on a lecture tour on invitation from the Hungarian Cultural Institute from Wojwodina, on locations including Senta (Zenta), Novi Sad (Újvidék), Mali Iđoš (Kishegyes), Subotica (Szabadka), Čoka (Csóka) and Sombor (Zombor). The authors reflect casually, partially in a fragmentary and aphoristic style, upon the cultural diversity of this region, post-war experiences and memories as recounted by the locals, the present possibilities and alternatives of Hungarian minority literature and culture, and their own existential status as parts of this cultural body dispersed throughout the world in many countries of the European Union and elsewhere.
