Máté Vincze highlighted that this year, the Night of Museums series of events will be promoted by Erika Miklósa, holder of the Hungarian Order of St Stephen, Kossuth Prize and Liszt Ferenc Prize-winning opera singer, who will serve as the goodwill ambassador for the event.
This year’s Hungarian Film Festival, jointly organised by the National Film Institute and Veszprém–Balaton 2023–European Capital of Culture programme, took place from 7 to 10 June in Veszprém, Balatonfüred, and Balatonalmádi.
The prime minister said that Veszprém’s performance shows that when Brussels bureaucrats manage to defeat their ‘well-developed Hungarophobia,’ then together, Hungary and Brussels can achieve great things.
The Balaton Uplands National Park plays an important part in the Veszprém-Balaton project of the European Capital of Culture programmes.
‘I think that there is a huge interest in Germany but also in other European countries for that rediscovery of European ideals in real life.’
Veszprém-Balaton’s year as European Capital of Culture will be dedicated to creativity, with art, music and gastronomy-related events being at the core of the programmes.
