The FSK mission is to nerve the creativity of Slavic cultures.
The Foundation’s basic purpose is to connect Slavic cultures and give them presence in today’s global social arena. The Forum of Slavic Cultures connects and represents Slavic culture, science and arts, their creative charge and heritage, while investing its efforts in bringing the recognizable contribution of Slavic cultures to the global dialogue.

Ivan Hribar and Slavic World, Villa Zlatica
The temporary exhibition will tell the story of Hribar’s idea of Slavism in the 19th century and juxtaposes it to the mission of the FSK, which this international foundation pursues in the 21st century. As they walk the paths that Hribar took as he was discovering the differences and similarities between Slavic nations, visitors will be able to observe the development of cultural cooperation between Slavic speaking countries.
On the initiative of Ioan Cristescu, Director of the National Museum of Romanian Literature, and Virgil Stefano Nitulescu from the National Rural Museum of Romania, a seminar on Museums that Count in Europe took place in Bucharest. Among other things, it aimed at strengthening the links between the FSK and the EMA with experts from Romania, a country bordering on the Slavic world and where the FSK could expand its activities in the future.
With the aim of enriching the programme activities in Villa Zlatica and developing new audiences, the Forum of Slavic Cultures has teamed up with the Ljubljana Puppet Theatre. The theatre presented itself for the first time in the garden of the Villa Ivan Hribar, the former Mayor of Ljubljana, with two sold-out performances of Sapramouse.
The Women Writers Route has been certified by the European Institute for Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe. The Women Writers Route is the first of the 48 Council of Europe Cultural Routes to be based in Slovenia.
