HERITO, no. 10: The elusive centre (of Europe)

HERITO, no. 10: The elusive centre (of Europe)

Grasping the centre is a troublesome, difficult or perhaps simply impossible task. Take, for example, the two Visegrads – places with identically sounding names, one in Hungary (Visegrád), the other in Bosnia (Višegrad). The first, which gave its name to the Visegrad Group, is a sign of building the foundations for mutual understanding between the countries of Central Europe. The other is a symbol of tragedy and an attempt at rejecting the past, building the future on forgetting. Thinking about one, it is impossible not to see the other, especially in the neighbourly context of Central European cooperation.

A wider aspect of Central European culture and civilisation is presented in two other groups of texts: Art: What has remained of Central Europe? and Visible and invisible cities.
