“Festival of Hearts”, High Level Popular Culture Week

One of the longest-lived folkloric events in Timisoara has been the gathering of artists from all over the world for more than three decades who wish to show off their ancestral or modern traditions. Festival of Hearts already has 30 unique color and sound versions. It is not Timisoara not to see one of the well-known performances of artists walking in the Opera Square.

This year in the 31st edition, the rich program has already been created. There will be many more events, more than is the result of the summary announced below by the House of Culture of Timișoara.
