Czech Republic celebrates Vietnam Culture Day

(VOV) -On October 9, Vietnam Culture Day was celebrated by more than 1,000 Overseas Vietnamese (OVs) and Czech nationals at Brno City.

“The festival contributes to better understanding between the two peoples and helps preserve Vietnamese cultural identity,” said a spokesperson for the organizers of the event.

The event featured a wide array of traditional Vietnamese dance, folk songs, and martial art performances along with a number of short video clips introducing Vietnam’s tourism and popular tourist destinations.

Participants also had chance to taste Vietnamese traditional cuisine such as Bun Rieu (Rice noodle with crab), Pho (noodle soup served with beef and chicken), and spring rolls.

In 2013, the Czech government recognized the OVs community as a minority group. This status has enabled thb to learn their mother language and preserve traditions.
