Czech cultural center may be opened in Brest

BREST, 4 April (BelTA) – The Czech cultural center may be opened in Brest, BelTA learnt from Honorary Consul of the Honorary Consulate of the Czech Republic in Brest Vladimir Mikulic.

“It is one of the ideas we are working on. It will help promote intercultural relations. For the project to be implemented initiators’ wish is not enough. Certain administrative procedures should be followed. A lot of issues are to be addressed. However, there is an interest and we want to bring this project into life,” noted the head of the diplomatic mission.

The first step towards setting up the cultural center will be the Czech language courses that will be organized under the aegis of the Honorary Consulate by the new academic year. One Czech company that has its business in Brest Oblast is ready to provide technical support and partial financing of the project. The company will provide premises for the future center (an office, classrooms and an exhibition).

“A lot of Belarusian school leavers show interest in the education system of the Czech Republic. We would like to help them here. It will not be just learning the Czech language though. Course participants will get an opportunity to learn the Czech language, sit an exam and get a certificate that gives the right to study at Czech universities on a free-of-charge basis,” the Consul explained.

As for cultural projects under the aegis of the Honorary Consulate, they will be continued. The corresponding action plan is currently under consideration at the embassy. These will be artistic and photo exhibitions. One of the most important joint projects, in which the Consulate will take part, will be the celebration of the 500th anniversary of the publication of Francysk Skorina’s Bible both in the Czech Republic and Belarus.

“There are a lot of ideas. Thus, last year the Moravian wines of the Czech Republic received high awards at one of the exhibitions in France. Czechs starts creating competition to French and Italian wines. There are even clubs of Czech wine fans in Europe. There are plans to organize, with the help of the Honorary Consulate, an event about the winemaking culture in the Czech Republic,” Vladimir Mikulic said.
