  • 100% European convinced. The institution has a special place in my heart. Of course, I agree that there are still many points to be re-discussed, I cannot bear the idea that many parliamentarians have been trying to "remove" this emblematic institution from Strasbourg. One Seat? Yes. But the unique Seat must be in Strasbourg, the heart of Europe.
  • Gorgeous building with amazing architecture. The place is overall a beautiful site with a great historic value. It definitely worths a visit. Try to attend a plenary session so you can enter the building and the Hemicycle. EYE 2021: First European Youth Event that our team attended. Amazing experience with lots of activities and things to learn.
