Three cities from Adria region joined UNESCO Creative Cities Network!

In order to promote the creativity of cities as part of sustainable urban development, in 2004, UNESCO started its official Creative Cities Network.  The cities that join this network share the best of their practices with each other and the public in order to promote and strengthen cultural activities, and innovation, and integrate culture and creativity sustainably.


Currently, the network consists of 350 cities in more than one hundred countries in creative fields such as Crafts and Folk Art, Media Arts, Film, Design, Gastronomy, Literature, and Music.



Yesterday, on the occasion of World Cities Day, UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay listed 55 new cities on the list, among which three cities belong to our dearest Adria region.

Those cities are:
