What is European Heritage Days?
European Heritage Days are one of the biggest events in September. It is a massive cultural event across Europe that aims to highlight the richness and cultural diversity of each European country. It also aims to generate appreciation for the history of the continent. Most of all it informs the public and political figures of the need to protect cultural heritage in the region.
This is why many of the historical, political and artistic institutions of Paris open their doors to the public in order for them to learn about the country’s politics, history, culture, and arts!
