European cultural heritage surrounds us everywhere, in cities, small vilages, natural landscapes and archaeological sites. We could discover it in art and literature, in the crafts we learn from our ancestors, the stories we tell our children, the food we enjoy and the films.

Cultural heritage connects Europe together through our common history and values. It also represents the richness and diversity of our cultural traditions. In 2018 there will be many initiatives and events across Europe to get people closer to and more involved with their cultural heritage, to encourage the sharing and appreciation of Europe’s rich heritage and to reinforce a sense of belonging to a common European space.
