Danube Day

2017. June 28 (All day) to 2017. June 30 (All day)
Department of Urban Planning and Design
On June 29, 2017, all countries along the Danube celebrate the significance and majesty of this European river by various activities and accompanying events. The twin-cities of Štúrovo and Esztergom are no exception. Join us and celebrate the Danube through culture, the main topic of our EU-funded DANUrB project!
Culture is what makes us different, but unique. However, it brings people together. As part of social relations, it is embodied in various forms - architectural monuments, traditions, customs, language, food, art, which ultimately co-create the complex and specific "genius loci" of the given site. Often we see it as a matter of course, sometimes we do not know about it. The precise identification of such cultural values is the scope of the research project DANUrB - DANUBE Urban Brand, financed by Interreg’s Danube Transnational Programme 2014-2020.
The upcoming workshop will start on June 28 at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME), the project Lead Partner´s home university, where discussions on research objectives will take place.
This interesting program also gives you the opportunity to engage in discussions with project partners, meet a wide range of stakeholders from 7 participating countries or to interview the authors of the interventions about what led them to design such solutions in these urban areas.
