The 2nd European Women's Team Championship was contested between 30 national teams (incl. the Croatia B team) in the Histria hotel in Punta Verudela, Pula, Croatia from 6-14 May 1997.

Time control: 120 minutes for the first 40 moves, followed by 60 more minutes for the next 20 moves, and no more extra time except 30 seconds added per move from move 61. Tournament director: Damir Medak. Chief arbiter: Geurt Gijssen. Number of games played: 270.
