    Plural vs. singular

    "International competitions offer European countries a platform to demonstrate their cultures and traditions."

    I'm wondering if it would be wrong to write "culture and tradition" instead of "cultures and traditions." To me, the latter sounds better, but I don't think the former would actually be wrong.

    Thanks!

    ***Neither a teacher nor a native-speaker***

    The plural form is correct unless you mean to say that the entire European countries share the very same culture and tradition.
