In 2013 Marseille has been designated European Capital of Culture together with the Slovak city of Kosice. Throughout the year the 97 municipalities of the region Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur offered to visitors hundreds of cultural events. The port is the most important of the country and has contributed to the economic growth of the city that became a cornerstone for cultural exchanges, a meeting point for different ethnic groups who were able to create a unique identity. Marseille maintains a traditional look made of narrow streets, small shops, historic districts as well as the many facets of a real cultural renaissance.
