ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the issues involving constitutional patriotism and public sphere in the integration of Europe. The author stressed that constitutional patriotism depends on a vital public sphere which made possible that European collective identity might be achieved without an effective and democratic European public sphere. He argued that the idea of constitution is deepened by attending to the question of what kind of socil imaginary underpins the creation of institutions and the organization of solidarity. Moreover, the author suggested that the importance of the public shpere lies not only in achieving agreement on legal forms and political identity, but in achieving social solidarity as such.
