Europe is home to rich and diverse cultural heritage, and each place has a story to tell. To celebrate this, the European Heritage Label was created to recognize the ongoing importance of cultural heritage sites that have played a significant role in Europe's shared history and values.

European Heritage Days Support European Heritage Label Sites

The European Heritage Days programme, as a platform for cultural heritage communities, supports numerous cultural locations by giving them the tools they need to maintain their preservation efforts.

The Council of Europe and the Commission have launched a new Call for projects on 14 February 2023 for the Support of European Heritage Label projects under the joint action European Heritage Days targeting European Heritage Sites practitioners.

MigratieMuseumMigration, the Union of Lublin, and the Archaeological Site of Nemea are three exceptional European Heritage Label sites that have been chosen to receive grant support for their cultural heritage projects.


Located in Brussels, Belgium, MigratieMuseumMigration (MMM) stands as a testament to the diverse migratory experiences that have shaped the continent's history. Recognized as a European Heritage Label site, MMM documents the stories of migrants who have made Europe their home. The museum's collections provide a unique perspective on the social, economic, and cultural impacts of migration, fostering understanding and appreciation for the contributions made by migrants to European society. With the support of the European Heritage Days grant, MMM will continue to expand its exhibits, deliver educational activities for its visitors, and encourage dialogue about the challenges and opportunities associated with migration.

The grant will help the museum to increase awareness around the experiences of young migrants living in Brussels through video capsules and a social media campaign.

The Union of Lublin:

The Union of Lublin holds immense historical significance as the agreement that united the Kingdom of Poland and the Grand Duchy of Lithuania in 1569. This landmark event laid the foundation for the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, a diverse and influential political entity that lasted for over two centuries. Designated as a European Heritage Label site, the Union of Lublin represents the enduring spirit of cooperation and shared values across Europe.

Lublin and Münster, have been twin cities since 1991. In 2023, as Lublin becomes the European Youth Capital, an intercultural dialogue and European values project will be launched, focusing on the shared heritage of both cities and presenting its outcomes during the official events of the European Youth Capital.

Archaeological Site of Nemea:

Nestled in the picturesque countryside of Greece, the Archaeological Site of Nemea provides a fascinating glimpse into the ancient world. As a European Heritage Label site, this ancient city showcases the remains of what once was a stage for important religious and sports activities in Greek antiquity. Home to the famous Nemean Games, one of the four Panhellenic Games of Ancient Greece, Nemea's history is interwoven with the mythological tales of Hercules and the hero's legendary endeavours.

With the support of the European Heritage Days grant, ongoing archaeological excavations, conservation projects, and visitor infrastructure improvements ensure that this captivating site remains accessible for generations to come.

Each of these selected sites offers a unique and compelling narrative that enhances our collective understanding of Europe's rich tapestry. By supporting their preservation and promotion, we ensure that these treasures continue to inspire and educate future generations about the historical significance and enduring values that shape our continent.
