A retrospective of what was has its purpose now, when we look back happily that everything happened at home and that, here, we have the opportunity to create, year after year, things and projects of the soul.

IntenCity Festival

Summer in Craiova was synonymous with fun, and the peak was reached with the second edition of the IntenCity Festival, which put Craiova on the map of major festivals in Romania. This year, we could enjoy artists such as Enrique Iglesias, DJ Tiesto, Godz of Rock, Mahmut Orhan or Sigma and many others. We are counting the days until next year's edition and we invite you, as usual, to Craiova, for an experience you won't soon forget!

Puppets Occupy Street – Fantasy Edition

A special edition of the animation art festival, Puppets Occupy Street, came together this year under the name "Fantasy Edition", letting us live, imagine and feel the magic of stories and childhood. Regardless of age, Craiova residents and tourists enjoyed plays, workshops, concerts and the traditional giant puppet parades.

Brâncuși. Of the world

Starting this year, the oltenian sculptor is increasingly known and promoted, in his own country, thanks to the first edition of the event "Brâncusi.

Exhibitions, conferences, concerts, all were dedicated to his immense personality, but also to all those who wanted to participate in the suite of events, access being free.

An event that enlivened a part of the rural area of the county is "Film in The Village", brought this year, in Cernătești commune, by the actor Cuzin Toma.
