“Not only did our predecessors shape history, but we ourselves do the same”

Speaking to the celebrating community, Tibor Navracsics said: let’s pay attention to the fact that not only our predecessors shaped history, but we ourselves do the same. Now, in 2023, when Veszprém and its region are the cultural capital of Europe, we can again add a page to the history of the city, Hungary and Europe that is specifically Veszprém, unique, special, Hungarian and European.

The citizens of Veszprém are not only part of world history and European history, but also creators of Veszprém’s history.

he emphasized. It is up to them whether this city, based on its great traditions, can remain the cultural capital of Europe in the future, whether it can remain a community that is proud of its traditions and present, so that our descendants can be proud of their future – concluded the Minister of Regional Development.

After the greeting, Ottó Fenyvesi, József Attila award-winning writer and poet, Márkusné Vörös Hajnalka chief archivist, project development consultant of the Veszprém-Balaton 2023 Cultural Capital of Europe program, and Jolán Némethné Károlyi received the Gizella Award from Mayor Gyula Porga (Fidesz-KDNP) teacher.
