The Art Club D137 project, which is called Top of Europe Haute-Savoie, opens a new page in the activities of our club, which can now also be called the Haute Savoie Amateur Club. The project is dedicated not only to culture, but also to many other aspects of life in this wonderful region of France, which is the highest point of Europe not only due to its geographical features, but also to the most interesting history, cultural studies, nature and, of course, people. We fell in love with this land, and we will talk about it in the hope that you will discover it for yourself!
