European Year of Cultural Heritage

The year 2018 was designated the European Year of Cultural Heritage by the European Union, creating a framework to launch and promote projects that communicate the architectural and intangible heritage of EU countries. The basic idea of the theme year was, although many monuments have local ties, they also remind us of Europe’s common cultural history. Strengthening the culture of monuments not only helps us to understand our own regional or national roots, but also strengthens our awareness of European history and the value of peaceful coexistence characterized by mutual respect. The slogan "Sharing Heritage" invites everyone to discover, share or visit these monuments.

This website has also been supported by the Sharing Heritage Programme. See the imprint for more details.
