FORTE CULTURA presented the European Fortress Summer for the first time on the occasion of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018. The groundbreaking motto is still relevant today:


"What once separated peoples now brings them together. For a lively cultural heritage fortified monuments in a solidary, democratic and peaceful Europe. We are in!""
