Späť na zoznam

On Friday, 10 December, we will find out which of the three Slovak finalist cities will win the title European Capital of Culture 2026. And we can finally present you the final Bid Book, which hundreds of people from Nitra, Nitra region, Slovakia and all over the world have been working on for the last months!

Bid Book Nitra 2026 – Breaking Point describes the concept of our candidacy, its artistic programme, our links with the cultural strategy of Nitra for 2021-2031 (the so-called NK31), the European dimension, the strategy of working with the audience, the involvement of the general and professional public in the project, and the plans of Nitra and the surrounding region for the development of cultural and tourist infrastructure.

Hundreds of people from Nitra, the Nitra region, Slovakia, Europe and the world have been working on the Bid Book for the last few months: the Nitra 2026 project team, Nitra City Council staff, independent cultural actors, representatives of major cultural institutions, university staff, activists, creatives, artists, and many others, all united by one thing – the vision of a more vibrant, active and cultural Nitra. Our cultural and artistic programme includes 244 international partners from 45 countries and 196 partners from all over Slovakia. A huge thank you to all of them!
