Peter Cagala

Project manager

The connoisseur of the Trnava cultural space. He has been managing the Culture Department in Trnava for 8 years. Thanks to than, people have embraced and enjoyed the culture on the streets of Trnava. He brought to Trnava the popular Summer on the Main street, the romantic Cinema under the Stars, the spontaneous PromaFrajdej, the fragrant Trnava picnic, the crazy Garden party and the Painting of the Trnava Hashtag. As the head of the Trnava 2026 candidacy project, he manages and interconnects all processes within the city, local authorities and partnerships in the private sector.

He is at the forefront of all decisions.

Michal Klembara

Michal Klembara

Project program coordinator

The most productive event manager around. Michal manages the independent cultural center Little Berlin, which annually organizes more than 300 multi-genre events, mostly from his own production. In the team Trnava 2026, he manages all program elements. He is the main playwrite of the bidbook and within the project, he also deals with international cooperation with cities that have already obtained the ECOC title. Michal was also in the Košice team, which became the European Capital of Culture 2013, so he has valuable experience for the project.

Peter Kadlic

Peter Kadlic

Project manager for the Trnava self-governing region

He has the geographically widest area in his scope. He heads culture and sports in the entire Trnava self-governing region, so he has an excellent overview of culturally vibrant villages, architecturally interesting places and he knows how to meaningfully involve county institutions and gain regional partners. We want to present to Europe not only Trnava, but the whole region, which smells of grapes, young wine, sweet honey, and which culturally, never sleeps.
