Cities that want to apply to become European Capital of Culture, usually, but not always,  decide this ten years earlier. For example, Matera decided to apply in 2010 to be European Capital of Culture in 2019. Six years before the title-year the selected host Member States publish a call for applications, usually through their Ministry for Culture. Cities interested in participating in the competition must submit a proposal for consideration.

In 2028 it will be the third time that the Czech Republic will have a European Capital of Culture after Prague in 2000 and Plsen in 2015.
