Uncovering the potential of Žilina together
Žilina is a candidate for the title of European Capital of Culture for 2026 because we believe that it is a unique opportunity for the overall transformation of the city and the entire region. We want Žilina to become an attractive destination that attracts creative people and visitors from all over Europe, and at the same time be a better place to live for all its inhabitants.

The European Capital of Culture is one of the best-known and longest-running initiatives of the European Union.
