The way we show a place creates a certain atmosphere that influences what we see and what kind of relationship we build with a place, and our cultural heritage in general. Watch this [video](https://youtu.be/iQxSz6wti3I) and see the same place depicted in different artistic ways.
The fact that Europe has long been the world’s number one tourist destination is largely due to our successful efforts to preserve our cultural heritage more effectively than others. In 2016 alone, Europe registered more than 615 million international arrivals, a number that, according to projections, will in the foreseeable future rise to one billion.

... it is important to underline that Europe has always been at the forefront of cultural preservation, which is an indispensable motor for economic growth. Am I jumping fast to conclusions? Let me explain. [István Ujhelyi](https://www.theparliamentmagazine.eu/articles/opinion/what-you-need-know-about-european-year-cultural-heritage)
Put simply, cultural heritage is cross-border in scope and supranational in nature, while embracing everything from customs, practices, places, objects, artistic expressions and values to natural or built environment and oral history. Preserving our cultural heritage stems from the natural thirst to value and care for things, objects or landscapes that we collectively enjoy as a group of people. [István Ujhelyi](https://www.theparliamentmagazine.eu/articles/opinion/what-you-need-know-about-european-year-cultural-heritage)
Although there is no universally accepted definition, according to the United Nations cultural heritage is “the legacy of physical artefacts and intangible attributes of a group or society that are inherited from past generations, maintained in the present and bestowed for the benefit of future generations”. [István Ujhelyi](https://www.theparliamentmagazine.eu/articles/opinion/what-you-need-know-about-european-year-cultural-heritage)
Nobody would deny that cultural heritage pervades every layer of our societies and fundamentally defines how we live our lives on a daily basis. Yet, few would be able to provide even a vague - let alone comprehensive - description of just what cultural heritage really is.

Beyond its obviously advantageous - however indirect - effects on the economy, cultural heritage is perhaps the most prominent facilitator of social cohesion across European societies. by István Ujhelyi (S&D, HU) Vice-Chair of Parliament’s transport and tourism committee [LINK](https://www.theparliamentmagazine.eu/articles/opinion/what-you-need-know-about-european-year-cultural-heritage)
Preserving our cultural heritage is one of the best indirect tools at our disposal to maintain economic development and create jobs at the same time. [István Ujhelyi](https://www.theparliamentmagazine.eu/articles/opinion/what-you-need-know-about-european-year-cultural-heritage)
