28th edition of the European Heritage Days
call for submissions

Once again the submissions for suggested events organised within the framework of the European Heritage Days are open. This year’s 28th edition of the festival of monuments will take place on 12-13 and 19-20 September under the slogan “Moja Droga” [My Way].

This slogan allowed us to refer to the way of our history that our nation had to go to regain independence and that had formed our identity as a nation. The way can also refer to the individual fate of the Polish people who had to leave Poland in the difficult times in order to undertake activities on emigration.


The slogan “Moja Droga” can be understood in different ways. It is not only related to the route taken in time or space, but it is also a term used to describe a loved person [my dear], that expresses respect, love, commitment. This interpretation allows the promotion of patriotic behaviours, reminding of the fate of our history’s heroes, who proved their enormous commitment to their Homeland.

Moreover, this year’s slogan of the European Heritage Days can be an invitation to travel through the Polish culture and history, to find one’s own way to discover the local heritage, as well as to discover the tourist routes connecting the monuments and places that are the evidence of important historic events.

We invite cultural centres, museums, libraries, schools, associations and other organisations to take part in the creation of the mosaic of events of the 28th edition of the European Heritage Days.

Because of the exceptional situation in our country, the events of the EHD 2020 can be performed in any safe form, i.e. live transmission from the monuments, lectures, meetings with interesting people, online demonstration of the exposition etc.

To take part in European Heritage Days 2020 one should fill in and send a registration form available on the website:

The suggestions for events organised within the framework of the European Heritage Days 2020 can be submitted until 31 May 2020.
