In 2016, San Sebastian will join Wroclaw (Poland) as the European Culture Capital. San Sebastian was picked out of six other Spanish cities.
The “peace and co-existence” slogan which caught the jury’s attention aims to “overcome violence and to have culture serve peace and cohabitation”. The whole Basque region is delighted with the decision.
The other European Culture Capitals are Guimarães and Maribor (2012), Marseille and Kosice (2013), Riga and Umeå (2014), Mons and Plzen (2015).
