There is a busy week ahead of Pécs, as both Sétatér Festival and POSZT (National Theater Meeting in Pécs) are starting this weekend! Each year during this time, the whole city sets out to enjoy the programs and culture, whether it be a play in the National Theater of Pécs, or a concert at one of Pécs’s most beautiful squares, in front of the basilica.
Sétatér Festival has been the most popular cultural and gastronomical festival in the region for years now. It offers concerts to the music lovers, plenty of wine of many kinds to wine lovers, a broad palette of delicious food for food lovers, and programs for children as well, so families get to enjoy the activities, too.
This year the fun will take place between June 6 and 16. The Opening Gala will take place at 7:30 PM on June 6. The next day there will be a Gala of Hungarian Communities Abroad.
