The European Heritage Label has been created with the aim to strenghten the European identity and promote the sites that play an important role in our common history and culture and in the European integration.

Two Hungarian sites have received the European prize so far. The Pan-European Picnic Memorial Park in Sopron got the Label in 2015, followed by the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music in Budapest in 2016.

This year the Dohány Street Synagogue Complex has been preselected by the independent panel assessing the applications for the Label. The Commission decided about the designation of sites in March.
