Elefsina to be European Capital of Culture in 2021

The selection panel of independent experts responsible for assessing the Greek cities competing to be European Capital of Culture in 2021 has recommended that Elefsina should be awarded the title. Three cities had been short-listed after the initial pre-selection round in February 2016: Elefsina, Kalamata and Rhodes.

With this decision, the line-up of European Capitals of Culture for 2021 is now complete with Elefsina joining Timişoara in Romania and Novi Sad in Serbia, a candidate country for EU membership.
