Even EU representatives can muddle up the different Esch towns in Luxembourg.

As Director-General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture, one would expect Cyprus' Themis Christophidou to know her stuff when it comes to the European Capitals of Culture.

However, a Tweet sent last week by Christophidou, offering congratulations to the 2022 capitals - Kauna in Lithuania, Novi Sad in Serbia and Luxembourg's Esch-sur-Alzette - included an image of the northern town of Esch-sur-Sûre instead of the southern city.

Although Esch-sur-Sûre possesses immense cultural and historical significance to the Grand Duchy, it is neither an official city, nor has it earned the accolade Capital of Culture just yet.
