This October’s Pecha Kucha Night takes place at a special location. The event will open the Rákóczi tér market hall for a night to show innovative urban projects from Hungary and the neighboring countries that bring new methods and tools to city development. From transforming street furniture to the renewal of Bratislava’s Old Market Hall, from the secret life of Csepel Művek to the future of Rákóczi tér, several speakers will provide insight to the development of cities in the Visegrád region.
