City of Trenčín wants to run for European Capital of Culture in 2026

On 7th February 2020 Andrea Chrastinová, PhD., participated in information workshop of Trenčín municipality on a cultural initiative of the European Union European Capitals of Culture.

In 2026, Finland and Slovakia will both host a European Capital of Culture and Trenčín is one of the Slovak cities that would like to apply for this award and to have a chance to showcase its idea of cultural life and cultural development of the City in the near future.

The European Capitals of Culture initiative is designed to highlight the richness and diversity of cultures in Europe, celebrate the cultural features Europeans share, increase European citizens’ sense of belonging to a common cultural area or foster the contribution of culture to the development of cities.

The experience has shown that the event is an excellent opportunity for regenerating cities, raising their international profile and breathing new life into a city’s culture. Of course, it is an impulse to boost citie´s tourism.

The winning city, which will succeed with its project in the European Capital of Culture competition in the Slovak Republic for the year 2026, will be known in December 2021.

The European Capitals of Culture initiative was developed in 1985 and has, to date, been awarded to more than 50 cities across the European Union. The 2020 European Capitals of Culture are Rijeka (Croatia) and Galway (Ireland). In 2008, the city of Košice won the call in Slovakia and became the first Slovak city with this title.
