DANUrB - INVITATION - Danube Day Celebration_Štúrovo / Esztergom / Ráckeve



The International Day of the Danube is celebrated on 29th June, accordingly several cities and several countries join this event with various cultural and sport programs. In Hungary we joined the international event last year and this year as well with a series of programs called ‘Danube Days’ within the frames of the Interreg DANUrB – Danube Urban Brand – project. The cities of Esztergom and Štúrovo are waiting for the participants with a variety of programs for the second time in this joint  venture. Government of Pest Megye, government of Ráckeve, government of Szigetbecse, Abascum Studio, Árpád Museum in Ráckeve – together with other partners – are also waiting for the participants with a variety of programs. Come and join us! 

One of the important objectives of the DANUrB program is to strengthen the cultural identity of the Danube regions by creating a comprehensive cultural network and to map out unused hidden cultural and social resources and built heritage. In accordance with the project, the aim of the series of events ‘Danube Days’ is to draw attention to local cultural values and heritage by linking existing programs and fostering further co-operation.
