Making the cut as a UNESCO Creative City is a big deal.
This program focuses on 7 different areas as they relate to sustainable urban development: Craft, Folk Art, Design, Literature, Media Arts, Music and of course Gastronomy.
Taking the title means your city has proven its self to be at the top of its game in the respective field. There are currently 180 reigning cities (check out the full list here).
