Budapest has been included in a project announced as part of the Creative Europe program, in which James Joyce's "Ulysses" is placed in today's context as part of a two-year cultural project, according to profitline.hu.

Budapest won a grant of EUR 1.78 million (approximately HUF 710 mln) for the implementation, together with 17 other European cities.

James Joyce's "Ulysses" was published 100 years ago (intended in 1922 as a modern parallel to Homer's classical work "Odyssey"), and takes place over a single day, June 16, 1904, in and around Dublin.

For the occasion, now known as Bloomsday, the European Commission's Creative Europe Fund has announced a grant award for an urban-cultural project it calls Ulysses: European Odyssey.
