The Armenian capital of Yerevan will host Europe Day celebrations on 26 May in an unusual way - the EU Delegation invites you to take part in a Nordic walk to launch the celebrations of Europe Day in Yerevan!

The Nordic walk will start at 10:00 am from the Circular Park, near the statue of Vardan Mamikonyan. The Head of the EU Delegation, Ambassador Piotr Świtalski, will join in. Participation is subject to registration via this form.

Participants aged 55+ will receive special gifts from the EU Delegation. The first 300 registered users aged over 55 will receive Nordic walking poles if they complete the whole course. Surprise gifts will also be awarded to the youngest and oldest participants.

This year, the Europe Day events in Armenia are being organised under the "Road to Europe" theme in the country’s five regional cities: Kapan, Yeghegnadzor, Ijevan, Dilijan and Gyumri. They will then culminate in the country’s capital of Yerevan.

The events will include outdoor information fairs attended by various EU-funded projects and project beneficiaries, various sports and entertainment competitions, branded gifts by the EU Delegation to Armenia and large open air concerts in all the cities, with performances by some of the best artists from the country and the EU.

The embassies of EU Member States in Armenia have also joined the EU Delegation by organising cultural and entertainment events in May.
