Vietnamese culture draws big crowd in Czech Republic

Prague, May 22 (VNA) – Nearly 3,000 people enthusiastically enjoyed the “Experiencing Vietnam” event, which was held in Prague, the Czech Republic, on May 21.

It is one of the main activities of the ‘The Year of Vietnamese Culture in the Czech Republic’ programme and is part of the 65 events marking the 65th anniversary of Vietnam-Czech diplomatic relations.

Vietnamese companies erected 40 booths displaying, introducing and selling made-in-Vietnam handicraft products and packaged food. Traditional dishes and coffee drew a big crowd.

In addition, folk songs, dances, traditional music, ao dai (Vietnamese traditional dress), and ethnic minority costumes are also a magnet for audiences.

Vietnam’s Ambassador to the Czech Republic Truong Manh Son said the event looks to help Czech people explore and experience some of Vietnam’s natural beauty, customs, and culture demonstrated by the Vietnamese community in the host country.
