This morning, part of our team, together with Mayor of Nitra Marek Hattas, submitted the final Bid Book of Nitra’s candidacy for the ECOC 2026 title to the Ministry of Culture of the Slovak Republic.

The 100-page document is a result of an almost two-year effort of several hundred people from Nitra, the Nitra region, Slovakia or even the whole of Europe and the world. A huge thanks goes to all those who participated in its creation and spent hours (often of their free time) thinking about how to make Nitra and its surroundings a truly European, lively and engaged place to live in. We will publish the Bid Book online in the second half of November together with its Slovak translation.

The Slovak holder of the ECoC 2026 title will be decided by a 11-member international jury on December 10, 2021. Before that, however, we have to prepare for an important visit from the jury, which will visit Nitra on 6 December, and a presentation and subsequent defense of our candidacy on 9 December. Wish Nitra luck!
