Major Cultural Route

TRANSROMANICA as Major Cultural Route of the Council of Europe


TRANSROMANICA was officially recognized as a “Major European Cultural Route” by the Council of Europe in August 2007.

The Cultural Routes programme was launched by the Council of Europe in 1987. Its objective was to demonstrate in a visible way, by means of a journey through space and time, how the heritage of the different countries and cultures of Europe represented a shared cultural heritage.

TRANSROMANICA as Cultural Route provides a concrete demonstration of the fundamental principles of the Council of Europe: human rights, cultural democracy, cultural diversity and identity, dialogue, mutual exchange and enrichment across boundaries and centuries.


To learn more about the key objectives of the programme and the operational framework, please visit the website of the Council of Europe.
The website of the European Institute of Cultural Routes presents activities and events along the Cultural Routes.
