Europe Day 2019 celebrated in BiH

Europe Day is an annual celebration of peace and unity in Europe!

“Being European means accepting differences and being tolerant towards people of other ethnic, political, religious and cultural orientations. Our common European history is what binds us together. It should not separate us. And, as Europeans, we should constantly remind ourselves not to repeat the mistakes and tragedies of the past,” noted Ambassador Lars-Gunnar Wigemark, Head of the EU Delegation to BiH and EU Special Representative in BiH.

On the occasion of Europe Day, the EU Office in BiH and the EU Info Centre organised the annual reception in the National Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina for over 400 guests.  The event hosted representatives of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s governments, diplomatic corps, media representatives, civil society, as well as partners of the EU Office within various projects.

The EU Office and the EU Info Centre in Bosnia and Herzegovina will continue to mark Europe Day throughout May in different locations across Bosnia and Herzegovina to celebrate common culture, traditions and innovations.
