After last year’s success, the Danube Days were organized again this year between June 29th and July 1st in Štúrovo, Esztergom, and this time also in Ráckeve and Szigetbecse on the Csepel Island, south of Budapest. The festival was jointly initiated by local municipalities and organisations and the DANUrB project partners KÉK, STU, BME and Pest County Municipality. It was part of the international Danube Day (June 29th) which celebrates the Danube River, its tributaries, and the vital role these water bodies play in providing water, food, hydropower, recreation and livelihood. In the settlements mentioned above, the aim of the Danube Days festival was to highlight the benefits of riverside living and to encourage local communities to actively use riverbanks as public spaces.
