It aims to promote awareness and appreciation of the long and rich history of Euro-Thai relations - as well as promote the vibrant cultural exchanges of the present.

The 'European Heritage Map and Cultural Calendar' smart phone application is a project of the EUNIC Thailand cluster and the European Union diplomatic representations in Thailand.
