Vietnamese Cultural Days underway in Minsk

The largest cave in the world, an ancient feudal town and picturesque bays - for a Belarusian, these Vietnamese places are exotic. Large-scale events dedicated to the Days of Vietnamese culture continue with the opening of an exhibition.

Visitors can enjoy the creations of nature and cultural sites at the National Art Museum. By the way, to see this beauty with their own eyes, Belarusians will not have to purchase a visa if they are going to stay in Vietnam up to 15 days. This decision was taken on 1 June.

Vasily Chernik, Deputy Minister of Culture of the Republic of Belarus:
The opening of the Days of Culture begins with a wonderful photo exhibition "Beauty of Vietnam." Those who came today could see firsthand that Vietnam is really very beautiful, rich in history, rich in culture and its people are hard-working.

Do Van Mai, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam to the Republic of Belarus:
This exhibition is of great importance for the Belarusian audience, because at the pictures you can see how beautiful our country is and learn more about people. The friendship between Vietnam and Belarus lasts from the Soviet era and is still ongoing. I think in the future it will only get stronger. And not only in political and economic spheres.

Last year, Hanoi hosted the Belarusian cultural days. Back then, the sides adopted a program of cultural and information cooperation.
