Known for its unmistakably nostalgic yet fresh and young atmosphere, Óbuda is hosting a "cultural night marathon" on 1 August from 4pm to midnight. Three of our member institutions, the Aquincum Museum, the Budapest Gallery and the Kiscell Museum welcome visitors on this evening with a wide range of exciting programs.
