Come to Óbuda and take part in a cultural marathon on 1 August from 4pm until midnight!
Cultural institutions of District III in Budapest, including museums, galleries, cafés and libraries, joined forces to organise a cultural event in Óbuda similar to the Night of the Museums.
And so the Óbuda Night of Culture was born.
