The decision was made by a European Commission panel of independent experts in Budapest this week. Further applicants for the competition included Eger, Gödöllő, Székesfehérvár and Szombathely.
The panel will make a recommendation for the Hungarian winner, to compete for the title with other EU cities, in late 2018. The EC appoints two cities to European capitals of culture each year.
