As one of the most important and biggest initiatives of the European Union in the field of culture, the title of the European Capital of Culture was established with the aim of promoting diversity, mutual understanding and cooperation of European cultures. Moreover, this initiative contributes to the positioning of culture as the basis of social development with a significant contribution to economic development based on knowledge, innovation and creativity.
During the 35 years of this initiative, numerous smaller and bigger European cities developed a new infrastructure for implementation of artistic and cultural practices, enabled wider access to culture, improved the image of the city in the international framework and developed the touristic offer.
