In 2016, the Croatian coastal city of Rijeka was awarded the title of European Capital of Culture for 2020.
Rijeka won the title for its programme “The Port of Diversity”, aimed at creating a city of culture and creativity for Europe and the future and will next year assume the role of Europe’s capital of culture.
As European Capital of Culture, Rijeka will organise a series of cultural events with a strong European dimension throughout 2020. Rijeka is sharing the title with Irish city Galway. The idea of selecting capitals of culture is to bring Europeans closer together by highlighting the richness and diversity of cultures and raising awareness of their common history and values.
