The European Capitals of Culture are a flagship cultural initiative of the European Union, possibly the best known and most appreciated by European citizens.

They are a clear illustration of the EU’s commitment to cultural diversity, but also of how culture can unite people within Europe. Indeed, the Capitals have always been an opportunity for Europeans to meet, to learn about their diversity, but at the same time to enjoy together their common history and values, to cooperate in new initiatives and projects: in other words, to experience the feeling of belonging to the same European community.
