Budapest100

BUDAPEST100: Share the Square! is a two-day celebration of Budapest and its historic buildings organized by volunteers, enthusiastic locals, and the very tenants proudly inhabiting the buildings. This year’s event on the 5-6th of May enlivens 24 selected squares in Budapest.

Small squares and big squares, old and charming buildings: countless programs and events await, prepared by those living and working there: legends, stories, secrets of the past and present come to life. Let’s “Share the Square”: here come the flowers of May, the active gardening communities, contemporary architecture fans and elders’ full of stories from times past, the picnics by day, and playing music together on the squares and parks by night. From cool cellars to the cosiest of lofts, let us open doors, gates and hallways: let’s meet on the square!

Budapest100, founded by the Open Society Archives and run by the Contemporary Architecture Centre (KÉK), aims to bring together people from different backgrounds and generations. Many of the venues host exhibitions and concerts and the programme also features a number of guided walks (some in English).
