Veszprém-Balaton 2023 ECoC

Welcome to Hungary's new cutural, creative region – Veszprém-Balaton 2023 European Capital of Culture

The aim of the Veszprém-Balaton 2023 European Capital of Culture project is to make Veszprém, together with the Balaton region, a new cultural hub of Europe.   

The European Capital of Culture title is an opportunity for the region to join forces to showcase its centuries-old traditions, cultural diversity, gastronomy and natural assets to Europe and the domestic public.  

The ECoC VEB 2023 programme pays particular attention to a number of horizontal principles in it sown and co-producedevents. These are sustainability, volunteering and visitor-friendly programming.  

Even before it was awarded the title, Veszprém had already hosted several events and festivals of national and international importance covering a wide range of music and related arts.   In addition to popular festivals and events like VeszprémFest, Utcazene (Street Music) Festival, Auer Festival and DANCE Festival, the city of Veszprém is also enriched with new programmes in the ECoC year. Whether it's music played for joy, acoustic concerts or street performances, the city's vibrant cultural diversity will captivate all visitors.  Newly opened design shops, bars and service providers promoting local gastronomy  will help you relax in the city centre.
