Following similar events in 1995 and 2007, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg will host for a third time a "European Capital of Culture" in 2022, Esch-sur-Alzette.

In 2022, three cities in Europe - Esch-sur-Alzette (Luxembourg), Kaunas (Lithuania) and Novi Sad (Serbia) - will hold the title of European Capital of Culture.

The European Capital of Culture is an initiative putting culture at the heart of European cities, with EU support for a yearlong celebration of art and culture. It aims to celebrate the cultural features Europeans share and highlight the richness and diversity of cultures in Europe.

Esch is a town in south-western Luxembourg, situated on the border with France. The town is in the valley of the Alzette river, which flows through the town.
