The event is also intended to stress the importance of all languages used for communication in Europe. There are over 200 European languages and many other languages which are used by citizens coming from other continents. This important heritage is a statement of our identity. Therefore people from the old continent celebrate this day in September by participating in numerous cultural events.
In Krakow, as in previous years, the learning, education and improvement of foreign language skills will be encouraged by the following cultural institutes: European Parliament Information Office and the Representation of the European Commission, The British Council, The Goethe-Institut in Krakow, The Austrian Institute, The Cervantes Institute, The French Institute, and The Italian Cultural Institute. Welcome to the event!
