As part of the programme of the Centre of the Forum of Slavic Cultures in Belgrade, a literary evening dedicated to the Bulgarian writer Zdravka Evtimova and her novel “Thursday” took place at the National Library of Serbia. The work, translated into Serbian by Elizabeta Georgiev, was published in the 100 Slavic Novels collection.
During their working visit to the Russian capital the visitors from the International Foundation Forum of Slavic Cultures met with their regular project partners as well as with Deputy Minister of Culture of the Russian Federation, Alla Manilova, and Yevgeny Primakov, Head of the Federal Agency Rossotrudnichestvo.
The Centre of Slavic Cultures Moscow has traditionally organized the Festival of Slavic Cultures on the occasion of the Day of Slavic Literacy. This year it took place in hybrid form, partly live and partly remotely. The festival also included a round table dedicated to new Russian editions in the Hundred Slavic Novels collection.
On the day marking the 186th anniversary of the National Library of Serbia the Serbian Minister of Culture and Information Vladan Vukosavljević opened the Centre of Slavic Cultures Belgrade, the second of its kind run by the Forum of Slavic Cultures.
The Forum of Slavic Cultures is a Ljubljana-based international foundation that connects people and institutions in thirteen Slavic countries through different projects.
