As active organization on the field of Culture we have established new title European Capital of Roma. Goal is that one European city would become for one calendar year European Capital of Roma. In that city several events would take part: educational, cultural, sports and other kind. Events would be local, national and international. Thr main focus would be to increase cultural tourism, invent new kind of cultural products and improve Roma living with the promotion of Roma cultural heritage.
