On the 25th March The EU will celebrate the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Rome Treaties. As part of the celebrations they have put together the Your Europe Quiz highlighting the work done in the field of citizens rights in Europe over the past 60 years. The quiz is open to play until 19 March 2017, 18.00 CET. If you reside in an EU state you can test your knowledge of EU rights and maybe even win a pair of one-month interrail passes. Good luck!
