EUROPEAN HERITAGE DAYS 2007
Languages of publication
In 2007 Poland held the fifteenth edition of the Heritage Days, established by the Council of Europe in 1991. The prime objective of the event is to promote regional cultural heritage and to recall the common roots of European culture. The fact that the Days are addressed to an extremely large and differentiated group of recipients endows them with a truly universal character. This year’s edition of the European Heritage Days was organised in all voivodeships under the slogan “People of the Road. Travellers, Pilgrims, Wanderers”. In 240 localities across Poland the organisers and coordinators proposed more than 1 300 events, including presentations, stagings, fairs, festivities, exhibitions, meetings with artists, etc, held in the course of several September days. Several hudred thousand Poles enjoyed an opportunity to take part in the largest cultural event in Europe. The Days offered a unique chance for free-of-charge guided tours of usually inaccessible sites, for discovering the history of one’s region, and for learning about the lives of our ancestors in the distant past. The honorary patron of the European National Days in Poland is the Minister of Culture and National Heritage, whose partners include Polish State Rail Joint Stock Company and the Civic Education Centre; national media patronage was entrusted to the daily ”Rzeczpospolita”, TVP2, the Wirtualna Polska portal and the bimonthly ”Zabytki Heritage”. The coordinator was The National Heritage Board of Poland.
