There are 23 municipalities in Upper Austria and Styria, a cultural region that is reinventing itself for the future through the interaction of art, culture, business and tourism (with currently around 190 fixed and 10 associated projects). Bad Ischl Salzkammergut, Tartu (Estonia) and Bodø (Norway) will host the European Capital of Culture 2024 together.
