The European Heritage Days are a widely celebrated cultural event shared by the citizens of Europe, when numerous monuments and sites open their doors for the public, allowing them to enjoy free visits and learn about their shared cultural heritage. This is the sixth time that CEU welcomes visitors and shares the heritage value and history of its buildings both for the broader public and for members of its own community. The guides are students, alumni, and faculty members of the Cultural Heritage Studies Program at CEU.

A treasure hunt about music, the traces are music, the solution is music, the reward is music – both for musicians and for non-musicians. The area called Lipótváros in the Fifth District of Budapest has preserved many important memories and memorials about music: Franz Liszt, Richard Wagner, Béla Bartók, as well as Antonín Dvořák were all connected to this part of the city. Explore the heritage sites and buildings, memorial plaques and public monuments of Lipótáros with your team, find out the stories connected to these, and by solving the quiz, investigate after a lost musician, without whom there will be no concert in the evening.
Meeting from 14:45 at the Nador 15 Front Desk.
If you want to participate, please, register in advance here.
