Foreign ministers of the Visegrad Group, which includes the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, and Slovakia, exchanged letters with proposals for more of the so-called Visegrad Houses at the end of last year.

The first Visegrad House embassy was opened in Cape Town, South Africa, at the end of March 2010 and is shared by the embassies of all four member states. "Based on the positions of individual Visegrad Group countries, we are currently thinking of eventually establishing a Visegrad House in Odessa or Sevastopol in Ukraine. Santiago de Chile (Chile) and Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) are also being considered in South America. No final decision has been made yet, and negotiations have not been concluded," Foreign Ministry spokesman Ľuboš Schwarzbacher told the SITA newswire.
