The scavenger hunt "Discovering Europe" in the European quarter of Strasbourg

 

Europe à la trace

"Discovering Europe" is a scavenger hunt through the European quarter in Strasbourg proposed by the CIIE and the Lieu d'Europe as starting point. Armed with a small booklet and a map of the quarter, the participants discover in an autonomous* manner "Europe in Strasbourg". In front of each institution, a riddle has to be solved or a question must be answered in order to find out a mystery word.

Thanks to the information provided in the booklet, the tour that takes between one and one and a half hours, allows to discover the buildings and to deepen one's knowledge about the European institutions. Once back at the Lieu d'Europe, every participant will receive a small present.

The scavenger hunt is also a perfect opportunity to visit the permanent exhibition of the Lieu d'Europe. This exhibition tells a story, or rather several stories: the story of Europe of course but also the story of Strasbourg, closely linked to the past and the present of Europe.

*Please note that the scavenger hunt and the visit of the exhibition of the Lieu d'Europe are self-guided tours (the groups have thus to foresee one or several accompanying persons).

      Polish National Day

    • The Polish National Day takes place on May 3 in honor of the first Constitution of this country which was adopted on 3 May 1791. The Polish constitution was written by the bourgeois and nobles of the four years diet under the rule of the last king of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania Stanislas II.

      This constitution was the first constitution voted in Europe. It covered many essential points to reform the institutions and organize the life of the Polish people:

      - it recognized rights to farmers

      - it keeps the hereditary monarchy and its executive power

      - it declared the political rights of representatives

      - it limited the size of the standing army

      - it imposed land management.

      Since then, the 3rd May has become a yearly holiday celebrating the adoption of the Polish constitution.
