Europe Café, the main European Union Information Centre in Chisinau, was opened on 1st of October 2020, in a virtual format, by the EU Ambassador to the Republic of Moldova, Peter Michalko, with the online participation of Ambassadors of the European Union Member States. Along with them, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and European Integration, Oleg Ţulea, addressed congratulations.
Europe Café was designed as a communication and information hub, where all those interested will be able to learn more about the European Union and its Member States, their culture and history, as well as the assistance they provide for the benefit of the citizens of the Republic of Moldova, throughout the programs and projects of the European Union and EU member states, which together act as the “Team Europe”.
Ambassadors of the European Union Member States highlighted that the Europe Café will become a space where the culture and assistance of EU Member States will be shown to the public.
The first exhibition inaugurated in the premises of Europe Café is entitled “EUMoldova: Stronger Together”. The photo exhibition shows success stories of the beneficiaries of EU-funded programmes in the Republic of Moldova – people who, with the European Union support, are able to improve their daily lives.
Europe Café is a unique space in the capital – located in a historical building on 97 Alexei Şciusev Street, with an innovative design. Once the pandemic circumstances will allow, the visitors will have the option to visit the premises, named in honour of the founding fathers of the European Union, browse publications from and about EU countries and test their knowledge about the EU in an interactive quiz. Thus, Europe Café aims to become an attractive place for people interested in the EU and European culture, share their own experiences and achievements gained with EU support.
Europe Café premises will be opened for visitors during specific events and weekly working hours. Due to current COVID-19 pandemic, such access will be restricted to ensure respect of safety regulations. For more information, please access the Facebook page of the European Delegation in the Republic of Moldova and the page „Stronger Together”.
