Reintroducing the Lviv Opera House, Lviv, Ukraine, Future European Union. [Poland, along with Romania and Bulgaria, is currently a member of the European Union; however, Ukraine is not, and therefore, Kyiv, Lviv, Kharkiv, and Odesa -- unlike Krakow, Bucharest, Sofia [and Istanbul]-- are ineligible for E.U. Cultural Capital of 'Official' Europe funding.]

"Turkey's bid to join the European Union (EU) has received a strong boost following a recommendation by a panel of experts for Istanbul to be the European Capital of Culture 2010, winning over the Ukrainian candidate Kiev [Kyiv] in a contest that was seen as not far from a political race.

2010 will be the last year when a city outside the EU can carry the prestigious title, with EU hopefuls Turkey and Ukraine both keen to scoop the status for Istanbul and Kiev [Kyiv], according to EU Observer website.

After 2010, the number of European Capitals of Culture is to be limited to two at the same time each year, and they will be both within the EU."
