Originally started as an EU-backed initiative in 1985 by two ministers from Greece and France, the European Capital of Culture was intended to serve as a bridge between European countries and a way to celebrate diversity and art across borders. Starting with Athens as the first Cultural Capital in 1985, more than 50 different cities have since been awarded the coveted accolade. Chosen cities have been found to benefit tremendously both socio-economically and culturally, and the accolade often serves as a catalyst for further growth and development in these areas. In 2007 it was decided to double the choice to two different host cities, and this year the European Capitals of Culture are Paphos in Cyprus and Aarhus in Denmark. Here is a short guide to the two cities and what you can expect from them during their stewardship of the award.
