14th International Culture Week in Pécs

The International Culture Week in Pécs (ICWiP) is one of the most popular annual youth cultural festivals organized in the City Pécs, Hungary. ICWiP has inspired more than 3000 young people from more than 80 countries during its 13 year-long history. Now you are invited, too. This year the festival will be held on 24 July - 1 August.

Its programme combines a summer school, different cultural and sport activities, and an inspiring festival with concerts, danceshows, and exhibitions.

The one-week-long summer visit to Pécs is not just a pile of workshops and enjoyable late night events. It is about building an international community of young, open-minded, ambitious people. The participants from previous years could all justify this statement.

Our aim is not just to gather the youth from all four corners of the world to Pécs, only to spend a week together and move home with the same social web they came with. Not only experiences are being exchanged here, but e-mail and postal adresses, phone numbers, even intimate secrets with newly acquired friends.
