The main purpose of the European Day of Languages that was celebrated on September 26 is to emphasise the importance of studying foreign languages and motivating citizens of EU states, including Slovakia, to do so, the TASR newswire reported.

To mark the occasion in Slovakia, a so-called Language Street was set up on Bratislava's Hviezdoslavovo Square on Monday. Several embassies, foreign cultural institutions and the European Commission’s Representation in Slovakia participated in the event, TASR wrote.

This year the event included a literature contest in which the winners will be able to publish their works in a special booklet, Elena Arnaudová of the Bulgarian Culture Institute told TASR. The programme also included screening of a short film at the nearby Mladost cinema and a flamenco performance by students from Andalusia, a Bratislava-based dance school.
