This year Russia has its first Capital of Culture. It is the city of Nizhny Novgorod. The news was leaked by Tass in the past weeks and was confirmed by one of the leading experts on European capitals of culture, Steve Green, who in his eighth report published on the site lists the capitals of culture around the world.

In recent days, the handover between the European Capitals of Culture 2023 and this year's European Capitals of Culture was held in Athens, for the second time ever since the European Capital of Culture programme was born. It is a happy intuition of Nancy Braun, Director General of Esch 2022, who already desired this initiative for the first time last year for the handover from Esch 2022, Novi Sad 2022 and Kaunas 2022 to Veszprem 2023, Eleusis 2023 and Timisoara 2023.

It was held in Chemnitz, European Capital of Culture 2025, the final conference of the 'CulTourData' project financed by the European Commission, within the COSME programme, to support SMEs, coordinated by Materahub with the participation of Basilicata Creativa and partners from Germany, Holland, Portugal, Spain and Slovakia.

With the support of EuJapan fest, three photo exhibitions linking two European cities and Japan are running until 29 February: Tartu, European Capital of Culture 2024; Wroclaw, European Capital of Culture 2016; and Matsudo, Japan.

Through the online platform Meet Up Ecoc! initiated by EuJapan Fest, European cultural capitals can get to know the profiles and contacts of numerous qualified Japanese artists available for their cultural grogrammes. Let's get to know them too.

In May 2024, a choir of children and adults will sing a lullaby for the city to unprecedented music based on the heritage of the lullabies of the citizens of Burgos and Matera.

There have been 11.6 million visitors to Bergamo and Brescia during the Italian Capital of Culture year that is drawing to a close. A twinning in the name of culture that will not remain limited to this year alone: in 2024, in fact, the Ciclovia (bicycle route) that will unite the two territories will be inaugurated.

In recent years, spectacular street art has appeared in several parts of Veszprém, including the Jutasi Housing Estate, Stadion street, and the Viaduct area. Two new areas have recently been covered with paintings, so if you're curious to see the finished works, head to the Veszprém Arena and the Maxon Tunnel.

On 15, 16 and 17 December, 2023 Eleusis European Capital of Culture, having achieved a small miracle in the city of Elefsina, one of the smallest cities that have hosted the institution, celebrates the completion of the official title year with a unique three-day celebration titled Mystery 1 Closing : Opening, A Ceremony.

The final conference of the European CulTourData project, a transformative journey at the intersection of tourism, culture and innovation, will be held in Chemnitz, European Capital of Culture 2025, on 10 and 11 January 2024.
