Exhibition Marks Centenary Of Serbian-Danish Relations

The Embassy of Denmark in Serbia, the Yugoslav Archives and the Serbian Ministry of Foreign Affairs jointly organised the exhibition ‘Belgrade – Copenhagen’, commemorating a century (1917-2017) of diplomatic relations between Serbia and Denmark.

The exhibition, comprising 198 documents and photographs from the funds of the Yugoslav Archives and the National Archives of Denmark, was opened by Aleksandra Fulgosi, Assistant to the Minister of Culture and Information.

Speaking at the opening, Ambassador of the Kingdom of Denmark in Belgrade, H.E. Anders Christian Hougård, said that this exhibition of archival material, documents and photographs in the Archives of Yugoslavia was “the crown on the commemorations marking the 100th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Serbia and Denmark.”

Professor Per Jacobsen, a Slavic specialist, great scholar of Serbian culture, academic and translator of the works of Andrić, Selimović and Tišme, said that links in the field of culture are much older than official diplomatic relations.
