Street is a paved public thoroughfare in a built environment. Is a public parcel of land adjoining buildings in an urban context, on which people may freely assemble, interact, and move about. The street is a public easement, one of the few shared between all sorts of people” (Wikipedia)

Have you ever walked on the street and thought what’s connecting all those people working/living there?
What brought all of them right to this place, to share this particular area?

In present times, when the EU is getting bigger and bigger and is starting to play more important role in our lives, when borders are fading, traveling, changing places and also meeting other cultures is getting easier.

This special mix of dialogues, stories and experiences is making our lives more colorful & creative but also we’re still often not well prepared to meet the “others”…or we’re preparing not so much…

But the strongest characteristic of Europe and the world is their diversity, i. e. different countries, various cultures, music, languages, customs, streets etc. All those things are making us exactly who we really are. They are all part of our real life.
