Donostia-San Sebastian and Wrocław European Capitals of Culture for 2016
Today the EU Council of Culture officially designated Donostia-San Sebastián (Spain) and Wroclaw (Poland) as European Capitals of Culture for 2016. The European Capitals of Culture initiative was launched in 1985 in order to help bring member states’ citizens closer together. Since then, over 40 cities have been designated and until 2019 cities from two member states will be designated each year as European capitals of culture.
