A selection of Protocol gifts offered to the European Parliament

This exhibition gathers gifts offered to the European Parliament in the last decades. The European Parliament often welcomes Heads of State and other distinguished guests during its plenary sessions, and the exchange of gifts is a ceremonial part of the official visit. Exchanging gifts symbolises friendship between people and countries, each object embodies the cultural heritage of the country that offered it. Come to see this unusual collection that shines a spotlight on this unique aspect of parliamentary life.
