Yesterday afternoon we submitted the Bid Book of our candidacy for European Capital of Culture 2026 to the Ministry of Culture! Huge thanks to all who have worked on this document for the last 9 months – cultural actors and enthusiasts from the City of Nitra and the Nitra region, employees of the City of Nitra, the whole Nitra 2026 team, 80 members of the working groups, the City of Nitra, Nitra self-governing region and every single individual, who contributed to its creation in any way.

The Bid Book is a comprehensive document that describes the concept of our candidacy, our proposed artistic program, the cultural strategy of Nitra for 2021-2031 (so-called NK31), the European dimension, the audience development strategy, the participation of the general and professional public in the project, or plans of the City and the Region in terms of the development of cultural and tourist infrastructure. In the application form, we defined Nitra as the Breaking point in time and space, as a place that regards its challenges as opportunities.
