The Europe Days is a program to celebrate Europe Day, May 9, when the “Schuman Declaration” – the foundation for the beginning of what is the European Union today – was made in 1950.
Since then, the EU has grown into a union of 27 member states.
This May, the European Union also celebrates 10th anniversary of its largest enlargement in 2004.
