European NAvigator (ENA) is an educational platform providing a wealth of information about the history of Europe and its institutions since 1945. It focuses particularly on the development of a united Europe.

Using the site is free, although the documents are protected by copyright.

ENA is developed by the CVCE (Centre Virtuel de la Connaissance sur l'Europe - Virtual Resource Centre for Knowledge about Europe), a Luxembourg-based public undertaking that is actively supported by the Ministry of Culture, Higher Education and Research.

ENA is available in English, French, German and Spanish, though some documents are available in other languages.
