European Day OfLanguages Marked

The European Union National Institutes for Culture in Serbia (EUNIC Serbia) organised the European Day of Languages in Belgrade

Throughout the course of the full day, more than 1,500 school pupils, teachers and students attended open door events at the Cervantes Institute, Goethe-Institut and the French Institute, where they were able to meet and establish contacts with 18 different organisations promoting European culture and language diversity: culture centres and embassies, but also the European Union Delegation to Serbia and the Office of the Council of Europe in Serbia.

The highlight of the day was the public event that took place in Kalemegdan Fortress Park in the afternoon, where European languages were celebrated through music, dance and theatre. This public event was opened by Tim Cartwright, head of the office of the European Council in Serbia, Mateja Norčič-Stamčar, deputy head of the EU Delegation Union, and Jean-Baptiste Cuzin, EUNIC president and director of the French Institute.
