European Heritage Days

European Heritage Days, as the name suggests, are a joint action of a number of European countries under the auspices of the Council of Europe and the European Commission. Almost every year, a new community joins the participants, and each year again the organisers choose a variety of themes to present Europe's cultural heritage to the local public, Europeans and the world. The publications that follow each year's events are designed to present different segments of the heritage, and are at the same time a permanent reminder of the European Cultural Heritage Days that took place in Slovenia.

They contain contributions from various scientific disciplines and disciplines, ranging from archaeology, ethnology, art history, architecture, landscape architecture, conservation, restoration, and many other disciplines.
