Description

 

2012 is a year of sports. London will host the summer Olympics and Finland is looking back 60 years to 1952 when the Olympic Games were held in Helsinki. The legendary Helsinki Olympic Stadium will also be the venue for this year's European Athletics Championships.

 

The EHDs in Finland traditionally focus on the built heritage. Local sports and recreation facilities are immensely important for our well-being and are also a noteworthy part of the built environment. The theme Sports and Recreation highlights our sporting heritage from large stadiums to local sports fields and swimming halls.

The 2011 theme of the European Heritage Days in Finland is Cultural Routes.  Historically, Finland was located at a crossroads of east and west: our built environment exhibits influences from both the European and eastern cultures.

 

Schools, museums, associations and other event organizers can draw inspiration from the theme to create events that will raise the public's awareness of diverse cultural routes and to show how local history is connected to the history of our continent.  The EHDs take place on 9Ė11 September.

 

This year marks Finlandís 20th anniversary of celebrating the European Heritage Days.
