The conference will be held in Visegrád, Hungary, a historic town in the Danube bend situated in the close vicinity of the Park Forest of Pilis, only 40 km far from the city centre of Budapest.
The town became internationally important during the reign of the Anjou Dynasty. Within cople of years this centre became the royal headquarters and the favourite residing place of the King.
In the Royal Palace of Visegrád took place the historical meeting in 1335, where the Hungarian, Czech and Polish kings took strategic decisions for political and commercial purposes in order to strengthen the role of the region. In 1991 the renewed Visegrad Cooperation was set up with the aim of supporting the three Central-Eastern-European countries’ Euro-Atlantic integration and their accession to the EU.
Nowadays the Visegrad Group (also known as the “Visegrad Four” or simply “V4”) reflects the efforts of the countries of the Central European region to work together in a number of fields of common interest.
Today Visegrád is a popular destination of national and international tourism. Most of the visitors are paying a visit to the Citadel, the Royal Palace and the Solomon Tower.
The conference venue is the Thermal Hotel Visegrád**** superior – which is at the same time the official hotel of the conference.
