The cultural institutions of the Municipality of Budavár, with their unique artistic potential, aim to build communities and reach out to the inhabitants of the district through their festival programmes and are primarily organising gatherings with meetings with a heritage, educational, urban conservation or literary theme.
Our culture is based on the interaction of artists giving form to their feelings and thoughts, so that they live on in the recipient. Artworks and productions across the area can make culture part of everyday life. Festival programmes in the 2nd District are the blocks of this process.
In multifaceted Óbuda, beyond the cobbled squares, serene salons, Roman and Jewish heritage sites, industrial monuments and the Roman Embankment by the Danube are buzzing with culture.
In the 8th district every story, every melody, every flavour and colour enriches us, whether it is Hungarian, Jewish, Gypsy, Greek, Arab, female or male - because every voice counts.
Once again, Bartók Béla Avenue and its surroundings offer exceptional discoveries, with performances, installations, walks and workshops for the active city dwellers.
Reopening is the word in the district's squares, streets, parks, and woods. Local and nationally renowned artists alike stand for openness to the new, the importance of recycling and the rethinking of public spaces.
The district presents its long-stretching, lush Danube bank opposite the Csepel Island, the cobbled streets winding up the hillside, the intricate underground system hidden under ancient houses and the AQB, a former brewery that turned into one of the city's most exciting art hubs.
