An exhibition of photographs of major European monuments and sites that have been awarded the European Heritage Label. It highlights places and events that are perceived as important historical and cultural milestones by the different countries of the European Union.
Their significance is not only understood at national level, but also carries a cross-border dimension of shared European memory, values and identity. From archaeological sites to architecture, from cultural landscapes to folklore traditions, from historical turning points to fine art. In one place, you can visit the Roman city of Carnuntum near the Czech border, the heart of ancient Athens in Greece, Cape Sagres in Portugal – an important place for overseas discoveries in the time of Henry the Navigator, discover the first democratically adopted constitution in Europe, the Czech castle of Kynžvart, where the post-Papoleonic organisation of Europe was discussed, the Belgian Mundaneum – the forerunner of internet search engines, or the partisan village in Franja, Slovenia, never discovered during the war…
Exhibition is organized by the Creative Europe and National Heritage Institute in cooperation with the Senate of the Parliament of the Czech Republic, Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic and Prague 6.
