Who is the Mayor of Europe?

The mayor is a representative of a territorial government unit and head of a municipality. The European Union is composed of 27 member-states and each of them has its different system of decentralised authority, the most prominent form of which is the municipality. Each municipality has a mayor, hence formally there is no single Mayor of Europe.

However, we believe that mayors in Europe deserve to be praised and honoured for their great everyday work. Here is why we have set up the annual awards "Mayor of Europe" for the most successful mayors in several categories.
