Celebrating Europe Day!

Europe Day, the 9th of May, is the birthday on European Union. On this day in 1950, Robert Schuman, the Minister of Foreign Affairs in France at that time, presented his proposal on the creation of an organised Europe. This proposal, known as the "Schuman declaration", is considered to be the beginning of the creation of what is now the European Union.

The decision to celebrate Europe Day on the 9’th of May was made in 1985 in Milan on the summit conference of European Union.

Today, the 9th of May has become a European symbol (Europe Day). This is a day, which gives all Europeans the possibility through different events to emphasise unity and to value all what unified Europe has given to it’s citizens.

The open-air festivities of the Europe Day are held on the 9th of May from 2 P.M until 8 P.M. in several Estonian towns:
