The European Places of Peace Route is a project of the European Network of Places of Peace (ENPP). It is a symbolic route which identifies and promotes the different places in Europe where peace treaties were signed as a federated network.

The Places of Peace Route claims that the intangible heritage of European places where peace treaties were signed constitute a new source of interest for visitors of these locations, and will be enhanced by conducting regular events, permanent exhibitions and other initiatives related to the peace treaties.

In order to achieve this objective, the ENPP works to:

  • Promote cooperation between the cities and places in Europe where Peace Treaties and Conventions were signed, and with European Organizations and Institutions whose main purpose is to defend Peace;

  • Promote mutual understanding, through exchanging joint experiences and initiatives with all the places where Peace Treaties and Conventions were signed;

  • Promote and publicize the defence of a Culture of Peace, as the best means of ensuring a peaceful and harmonious environment among the peoples of Europe, for a Europe of Peace;

  • Promote events and initiatives in defence of a policy for Peace, in cooperation with national, regional and local governments and with European institutions, namely the European Commission and Parliament;

  • Promote contact and joint initiatives for the defence of Peace with other places and regions in the World, especially in those where war is a bloody reality;

  • Promote Cultural Tourism for Peace, by integrating the places of Peace into the maps and programs for tourist development in every region and European country.
