Organizers announced the dates of Szabihíd 2018
Posted by Budnews · Jun 6, 2018

The event series when Liberty Bridge is closed for traffic and opened for people and programs will be held again.

Remember that cool event last year when people occupied the Liberty Bridge? You know, when the bridge was closed from car traffic and public transport, and only pedestrians can take possession of it. Well, this cool summer event will be held again this year! The initiative started two years ago, spontaneously, when the bridge was closed due to refurbishing works during the whole summer. People of Budapest took possession of it soon: thousands of people had picnic, there were yoga classes, spontaneous concerts and art performances. This summer was so successful that next year Valyo organized it again and the city administration closed the bridge for 4 weekends just because of Szabihíd.

And now it’s official: tradition continues. Deputy Mayor of Budapest Alexandra Szalay-Bobrovniczky announced that people got the bridge on four consecutive weekends between July 14th to August 5th, so the Szabihíd Weekends are the following: 14-15 July, 21-22 July, 28-29 July and 4-5 August. Meet you there?
