As part of the annual Europe Days 2018, the “Europe Village” recently held in Hanoi has been considered a culture highlight. The event impressed a number of locals and visitors, helping connect and strengthen mutual understanding between Vietnamese and European.

For the first time, the European Union Delegation to Vietnam and 18 embassies of member states hosted the “Europe Village”.

With some 20 cultural shows and performances, the programme introduced the European cultural diversity from arts, cuisine to fashion and lifestyle.

"The event is helpful. I can learn about countries in the world, of which Spain leaves the deepest impression on me with many excellent football players," Tran Bao Nam, a student said.

Ta Quang Hau, a Hanoian said that the event provides a chance to introduce international friends about its culture, cuisine and people.

"The location of hosting the event is absolutely beautiful with Statue Ly Thai To right behind, The Huc bridge and Ngoc Son temple over there, and a walking zone - the highlight of the capital," said Hau. "I think the location couldn’t be better in helping promote the image of Hanoi to foreign friends," he added.-VNA
