The European capital of culture

Europe is absolutely bursting with culture.  Find out more about it so you can take full advantage.

One way to promote and celebrate the cultural heritage of Europe is the European Capital of Culture. In 2014 it is... Riga in Latvia and Umea in Sweden.

There will be lots going on so if you were thinking about taking a trip to either of them, 2014 would be a great time to do it!

This whole Capital of Culture lark came about as a means of bringing citizens of the European Union closer together – celebrating the cultural history of lots of different places.
