Hospitality is a very dear topic to the European capitals of culture. And it is a very important element for the growth of quality tourism. Much depends on the ability of individual citizens and of the entire local community to put themselves at the service of the tourist or of what is now increasingly commonly called "temporary citizen".

In some cities of the Czech Republic, the days are very hot and not only due to the high temperatures that are characterizing this summer. The deadline for submitting the dossier that will allow candidate cities to participate in the European Capital of Culture competition for 2028 expires on 1st September.
