Get exploring with MYC during Open Heritage Days! Upcoming 12th and 13th of September – thousands of historical buildings and sites throughout Europe are open to the public free of charge. Besides opening their doors, many locations also organize on-site activities like exhibitions, musical performances and guided tours.

Why don’t you check out MYC, the places and their stories during Open Heritage Days? Did you know there are already more than 21.000 places in the Map Your City app! Great historic places, hidden architecture gems, urban interventions, creative hubs…more are added every day! MYC is a great companion to have with you upcoming open heritage weekend.

Add heritage that stole your heart or share your awesome ideas for some abandoned places. Collect your favorites on your own map. Add your pictures or leave a message on the building “wall”. And off course you can share your favorite places with your friends and family, co-workers or fellow-students through social media.
