Our partners

Budapest would like to be literally the World’s Book Capital

Budapest has extensive twinning relationships and is a member of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network, while the relationship networks of the organisers of cultural festivals in Budapest are also a good source for numerous new partnerships and programme cooperation as well as visitors to our events. We have sent partnership requests to cities we have good long-standing relationships with; we hope that we will be able to achieve international cooperation on a grand scale. Examples include our cooperation with libraries in Krakow, Rome and Beijing; Vienna, Shanghai, Prague, Buenos Aires and Frankfurt have also indicated their support. As holder of the WBC title Guadalajara will be main partner for us during the year.
