    European integration has historically been concerned with economic and commercial benefits, but now the aim is to take it further, starting with a broader base capable of involving citizens to a greater degree and strengthening the feeling of belonging to the European Union, while respecting the diversity of national and regional traditions and cultures. This development is reflected in the Treaty on European Union (Maastricht Treaty signed on 7 February 1992), which designates new areas of Community responsibility (education, youth, culture, etc.). The main aim of this paper is to attempt to explore the features, capabilities and prospects of EU’s Cultural Activities in order to present a different approach to the institutional development of the European identity. It is also an attempt to spell out some of the practical political implications of the cultural diversity of states within the European Union framework. Therefore, the main task of this attempt is to explore and access the cultural activities of the European Union. The paper first examines the institutional framework for cultural activities then, the analysis shall focus upon the specific policies , programmes and measures that promote the establishment of the so-called "European Identity", which will boost the European citizenship.
