A Vietnam Culture Day was held on April 26 in Prague, to introduce Vietnamese cultural traditions to people in the Czech Republic.

The event was organised by the Vietnamese Embassy and Vietnamese Association in the country in coordination with the Czech National Gallery.

As part of the ongoing Vietnamese art exhibition in the city, the event embraced a series of activities, such as traditional art performances, Vietnamese handicraft display and an Ao dai (long dress) show.

Addressing the opening ceremony, Ambassador Truong Manh Son spoke highly of the Gallery’s idea to hold the event, saying that it contributes to further fostering mutual understanding and the all-round cooperation between the two countries and their people.

The Vietnamese art exhibition, which kicked off on February 6 at the Czech National Gallery, shows off a number of Buddha statues dating back to the 18th century and a collection of Dong Ho traditional paintings and some ancient pottery. It is scheduled to run until May 12.

According to Ambassador, the embassy plans to team up with Vietnam’s relevant agencies and those of the host to hold several other activities in the coming time to celebrate the 65 th anniversary of diplomatic ties between the two nations.-VNA
