Cultural Embassies

Ever wondered just what connects the Slovaks to the Scots, or the Dutch to Dalkeith? We’ve charted the connections between Scotland and 27 European member states to create our own map of Europe in Scotland.

Look out for our Cultural Embassies brochure so that you can find lots of connections between Scotland and Europe. We've got copies available in a range of iCentres across Scotland (available from 28th August). Or download your own copy of our brochure here.

Once you've picked up your brochure, head to any of the sites, snap a photo, post the photo on twitter, facebook and/or instagram and tag @doorsopendays or #DODscot30 to be entered in a prize draw!

And why not make your own connections? Can you tell us some other links between Europe and Scotland in your area? Share your connections with us via #DODscot30. 

Cultural Embassies was launched on 7th August 2019 at the Great Polish Map of Scotland in the Scottish Borders, with thanks to the European Heritage Days. This project has launched Doors Open Days' European Heritage Days theme of 'Arts and Entertainment'.
