On the occasion of the 2008 European Heritage Days, Ján Figel', Member of the EC in charge of Education, Training, Culture and Youth, held a press conference to introduce the European heritage days event.
Once a year, Europe's cultural heritage is celebrated by people in 49 countries. The events highlight local skills and traditions, architecture and works of art. The goal is to bring citizens together to enjoy heritage and bridge differences in culture and language. The programme offers particularly opportunities to visit buildings, monuments and sites, many of which are not normally accessible to the public. SHOTLISTLINK
