Ecoc 2028, Broumov and Budejovice in short list

Praga Praga

Broumov and Budejovice are the cities in the Czech Republic that passed the preselection and entered the short list to become the European Capital of Culture for 2028. This was announced today by the evaluation panel of the European Commission during a press conference that took place today in Prague.

The other two candidate cities were Liberec and Brno.

To find out more about the two cities that passed the pre-selection, you can read the exclusive Ecocnews interview with the team of the two candidate cities still in the running.



During the announcement, the European Commission's evaluation panel thanked the teams of the four candidate cities for the extraordinary work done in their dossiers. A job that will certainly be very useful to give quality to their future.

In 2028 it will be the third time that the Czech Republic will have a European Capital of Culture after Prague in 2000 and Plsen in 2015.

The definitive European Capital of Culture 2028 title for the Czech Republic will be awarded next year.
