Späť na zoznam

Nitra is advancing to the second round of the competition for the European Capital of Culture! We are extremely happy and thankful to everyone who helped us with the project or supported us in any way. From the eight candidate cities, an international jury headed by president Paulina Florjanowicz selected 3 finalists – Nitra, Trenčín 2026 and Žilina 2026. We send huge congratulations to our colleagues!

We have half a year full of work ahead of us, which we are very much looking forward to. We plan to involve more local cultural actors and residents of the city of Nitra in the process. We want to work more closely with the region and deepen the European dimension of our application. We have a long way to go, but you can follow all the steps and plans of Nitra2026 on our Facebook – and Instagram –
