In 2013, Europe Has 2 Capitals of Culture

European Capital of Culture 2013Every year (since 1985), European Union designates a city which organises a series of cultural events with a strong European thematic. The first city to hold this title was Greek Athens and since then a limited number of cities has followed. This programme was created to promote European cultures within the member states as they were not given the same attention as politics and economics. And what is more important to reinforce European awareness than presenting its colourful culture?

For me, this year is going to be special. There are 2 cities to enjoy the honour. Marseille (France) and Košice (Slovakia). One in the country where I live (only few minutes’ drive) and the other in the country of my origin. Coincidence? Yes. A very pleasant surprise, though.

So if you are planning to visit one of the two (or even both), know that there will be a lot of things going on throughout the year. Art exhibitions. Concerts. Film festivals and much much more. Keep it in mind! I certainly will.
