Wrocław becomes European Capital of Culture 2016. Unanimously!


International jury unanimously chose Wrocław as European Capital of Culture 2016!

Austrian Manfred Gaulhofer, the chairmen of the jury, awarding the title of the European Capital of Culture on press conference in Łazienki Park (Warsaw) today at 4:00 p.m. announced the result of this year's contest. He stressed that the decision was made unanimously. Wrocław defeated Gdańsk, Lublin, Cracow, and Warsaw.

The advanced municipal revitalisation program, rapid economy, and involvement in the international and interreligious dialogue contribute to the Wrocław's victory.

- We congratulate the city which won this procedure, yet, we stress that the winning position is not a guarantee of success. A lot of work is ahead of Wrocław, and this work will require strong involvement from public authorities, also in the range of culture funding. A group of experts will carefully observe the city preparations leading to the accomplishment of the aims of the European Capital of Culture - said the selection committee members in Warsaw.
