Celebrations of the European Heritage Days are now getting underway across Europe.

Until the end of October, all over Europe people can visit and take part in exhibitions, craft workshops, tours, festivals and much more. More than 70 000 events are taking place over the next two months to help raise awareness of Europe's common heritage and the need to protect it, as well as to create shared cultural heritage experiences, promote inclusiveness and foster creativity and imagination.

This year, the European Heritage Days celebrate the European Year of Cultural Heritage under the common theme ‘The Art of Sharing’ – a commitment to promote wider access to our rich cultural heritage in the future. During the European Year, people discover and engage with Europe's cultural heritage at events at local, regional and European level. The European Heritage Days are an important element of this with a diverse programme.
