EXPLORE EUROPE'S INDUSTRIAL HERITAGE WITH ERIH

ERIH STANDS IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE PEOPLE OF UKRAINE

Russia invaded Ukraine with its army and annexed regions of the country. Russia has thus positioned itself outside what constitutes our common European values and the basis of our European cooperation as a Cultural Route of the Council of Europe.

In solidarity with Ukraine, we have removed the descriptions of all Russian sites presented on our website until further notice.
