European Heritage Days 2016: Celebrating the people behind the places

As custodians of local traditions, histories and values, Heritage Communities are the living transmission of Europe’s cultural richness. Under the pan-European theme of “Heritage and Communities”, this year’s EHD events will bring together 50 European countries in a celebration of citizens’ roles in promoting and sharing common European heritage.

Throughout Europe, more than 50000 national and local events, many of them free of charge, will celebrate Europe’s true treasure – its communities and the people behind the places. Museums, galleries, historic archives, libraries and many other places will be brought into the spotlight to encourage active participation in heritage conservation and interpretation
