Europe Day is May 9 - EU institutions open their doors to the public in May.
Europe Day celebrates peace and unity in Europe.
May 9 marks the anniversary of the historical Schuman Declaration At a speech in Paris in 1950, Robert Schuman, the then French foreign minister, set out his idea for a new firm of political cooperation in Europe, which would make war between Europe's nations unthinkable.
His vision was to create a European institution that would pool and manage coal and steel production.
A treaty creating such a body was signed just a year later. Schuman's proposal is considered to be the beginning of what is now the European Union.
