Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe

The Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe programme was launched in 1987 to demonstrate, by means of a journey through space and time, how heritage from different European countries contributes to a shared cultural heritage.
Cultural Routes put into practice the fundamental principles promoted by the Council of Europe: human rights, democracy, participation and cultural diversity.
The Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe aim to act as a channel for intercultural dialogue and to promote better knowledge and understanding of European cultural identity, preserving and enhancing natural and cultural heritage as a source of cultural, social and local development.

Today, 48 “Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe” cover a wide range of European themes, including more than 3000 institutional network members crossing the Organisation’s 46 member States and beyond. This broad European network allows synergies between national, regional and local authorities, and a wide range of associations and stakeholders, encouraging direct access to European heritage.

Euroart is cofounder of Impressionisms Routes, which was certified “Cultural Route of the Council of Europe” in 2018.
