CIS cultural capital status to help enhance Brest’s international recognition

CIS cultural capital status to help enhance Brest’s international recognition

BREST, 5 April (BelTA) – The status of this year’s cultural capital of the Commonwealth of Independent States will help enhance Brest’s recognition on the international scale, BelTA learned from Brest Mayor Aleksandr Rogachuk on 5 April.

Aleksandr Rogachuk said: “When in 2017 we learned about the status of the CIS cultural capital, we saw it as a gift on the occasion of the 1,000 years since the city was founded. International events logically match city ones. This synergy will produce a good result.” The mayor added that events of this kind represent a good platform for promoting the city. “If a city is recognized, is associated with the cultural capital title in the post-Soviet space, I am sure it will be more interesting for investors and tourists a priori. This status is a mission of honor for us,” he stressed.

The Armenian city of Goris was the cultural capital of the Commonwealth of Independent States in 2018. Brest will take over the honor today. In 2019 Brest is supposed to host over 30 major cultural events involving representatives of the CIS member states. “Our national culture boasts high accomplishments and uniqueness. I have no doubt it will be interesting for partners from the CIS. And we will be able to get familiar with the culture of CIS countries, to discover new talents,” the Brest mayor noted.

The Brest mayor took part in a roundtable session on the integration of national cultures in the modern world on 5 April.
