Trenčín has what it takes!
It is full of people that care about it. Join us and discover the potential of our small city, where everything is right around the corner. It is made up of communities and people who care about what is happening in the city. It is made up of all the events and happenings that bring joy into our lives, brighten our days, and that we are all looking forward to.
Do you want Trenčín to be oozing with culture? We do!
We care about Trenčín deeply, and we firmly believe that it could become the European Capital of Culture in 2026. We are hoping that thanks to the projects which are already taking place in our city, and the ones that we are preparing, we will be able to transform Trenčín into a city full of diverse culture in the coming years.
Trenčín, that’s Pohoda
And Pohoda is not only one of the best European festivals, which happens to be taking place in our city each year. It is also the Slovak word for „chill“ which could not be more fitting, as the life in Trenčín is definitely „pohoda“. Come and get to know with us all the nifty locals, cool events, and interesting places that are worth visiting.
How does the ECOC work, and what can you expect?
