Every year since 2013, World Art Nouveau Day has been celebrated on Hungarian initiative. On this day, many institutions from all over the world join a series of events that showcase the unique art scene of the turn of the century.

This year, the theme of the World Day, proposed by Réseau Art Nouveau Network, an international organisation for the popularization of Art Nouveau, is "My favourite Art Nouveau Architect". The special event of the programme series is an international exhibition of the Art Nouveau art of the region, that can be viewed at a time by the members of the Interreg Danube Transnational Programme (Belgrade, Bucharest, Budapest, Ljubljana, Oradea, Sofia, Subotica, Szeged, Vienna, and Zagreb).

The exhibition “Waves of Art Nouveau – Architecture in the Danube Region” can be visited free of charge in FUGA in Budapest from 30 May to 18 June 2018. On the occasion of the World Day, further weekend programs, Art Nouveau city walks, guided tours in the exhibition and family sessions will be organised for the public on 9–10 June 2018.
