What does it mean to get the title "European Capital of Culture"?

The title "European Capital of Culture" is given to two European cities every year. Besides Aarhus, Pafos in Cyprus has received the title of European Capital of Culture in 2017. Each Capital of Culture has a cultural program with special exhibitions, performances and gatherings involving local, national and international partnerships that cooperate with attention to quality and participation.
