On Tuesday, November 2nd, we sent out a hundred-page application - the Bid book, which contains the programme of Trenčín as the European Capital of Culture from 2021 to 2026.


The Bid book was carried down from the castle


The journey of the Bid book started from the Matúš Čák Tower at Trenčín Castle and was carried down by the climber Jaroslav Dutka, a member of the HoryZonty film festival crew. Dutka handed over the Bid book to dancers from the University folklore ensemble Družba (the costumes were lent by the Vršatec Folklore Ensemble). People from the cultural community and non-profit organizations, employees of the city of Trenčín, the Trenčín Self-Governing Region and the town of Trenčianske Teplice came to the castle area to escort the Bid book.
