Valletta Capital of Culture 2018
Holding the esteemed title of the European City of Culture for 2018, Valletta oozes cultural heritage, elegance and nobility.
On the 13th of October 2012, Valletta was announced as The European City of Culture for 2018. This prestigious title reflects the incredibly rich cultural heritage of this Baroque masterpiece.
The Valletta 2018 Foundation was set up to pilot Malta’s successful bid, and it is this organisation that has created the ambitious vision for Valletta in 2018. The vision is based on four thematic elements: Generations, Routes, Cities and Islands. During 2018, Valletta will be organising a number of events that will serve as inspiration to other cities based on these elements.
