CEU Welcomes Visitors at European Heritage Days

September 26, 2017

CEU welcomed Hungarian and international visitors to the CEU campus for the European Heritage Days (EHD) / Journées européennes du patrimoine (JEP) September 16-17. The Cultural Heritage Program, the Civic Engagement Office and student volunteers invited visitors to discover the hidden secrets of the CEU buildings and to get to know the University better.

CEU offered thematic guided tours on campus and in the University's neighborhood in English and Hungarian. Visitors could learn about the history of CEU’s Nador utca buildings through the centuries, they enjoyed concerts at Estratto - Cafè Universitario in Nador 15, heard about the University’s historical neighborhood, which is known as Inner Leopold Town, and gained a sneak peek into the life of surrounding 19th-century palaces. 

The European Heritage Days are the most widely celebrated participatory cultural event shared by the citizens of Europe. The Council of Europe launched the initiative in 1985. Held in September each year, the eventsc take place in the 50 countries party to the European Cultural Convention.
