Each calendar year, the European Union names two cities as European Capitals of Culture, and during that year there are many cultural events in the selected places. This is a great chance for the designated cities to move into the center of attention, become bridges of communication, gain social and economic benefits, and become locations where international activities take place. With this approach, diversity of cultures and common efforts for mutual understanding can be encouraged. This year's capitals are the capital of the region of Frisia - Leeuwarden and the Maltese capital - Valletta.
