Main steps towards the European Cultural Route of Reformation

Together towards the "archipelago" European Cultural Route of Reformation

In the project meeting held in Plzen in May 2017 the partnership agreed on the European Cultural Route of Reformation becoming an "archipelago" Route and its managing body being an association. 

Based on the cultural route types identified by the European Institute of Cultural Routes, archipelago routes (also called "virtual routes") have a common theme but no territorial continuity and form a network of points of interest under a common narrative and story.

The Route should include single sites and points of interest, but also already existing trails (linear routes), generally used for travel, trade or linked to historical events and processes. This diversity and the large geographical scope expected to be covered by the Route are unique and very remarkable added values; however, at the same time they may pose some challenges to the establishment and cohesion of the Route. Being aware of the that, the partnership is making big efforts to get all relevant actors on board and actively involve them from the very beginning, in constructing the framework of the future route and developing the shared story behind the cultural route.

To run the Route, the partnership agreed on the form of association, as being the most suitable. More details on the exact practical execution of this management structure and the country where it will be registered will be decided until the end of October 2017.
