May meetings in Budapest
The traditional Belarusian cultural event — May.By — May Meetings with Belarus — opens in Budapest for eighth time
The presentation took place in the historical centre of Budapest during the annual meetings with Belarusian culture and arts. The exhibition of painting by Belarusian artists Anton Vyrva and Darya Shishkova was shown to the public, alongside photos of interiors by Belarusian architect and designer Lora Kalinina (with the presence of the master).
The Belarusian Ambassador to Hungary, Alexander Khainovsky, addressed all those attending with a welcome speech, underlining the diversity of Belarus’ cultural heritage. He emphasised the importance of the development of bilateral ties in culture and arts for further closeness of the nations. The diplomat also paid attention to high levels of development of the Belarusian school of architecture and design.
The event aroused a great interest amongst the guests, among whom were representatives of the Hungarian state institutions, diplomatic missions, business circles, creative intelligentsia and the Hungarian media. The meeting was of great importance, taking into account the Icon Painting of Belarus in the 17th-18th Centuries, which is still exhibited in the Budapest History Museum.
