Danish Ambassador kicks off Hans Christian Andersen Week in Slovakia

Hans Christian Andersen Week, a joint project by Denmark's Embassy to Slovakia and the Bratislava-based international house of arts for children Bibiana, was ceremonially opened on Tuesday, April 17.

Hans Christian Andersen Week, a joint project by Denmark's Embassy to Slovakia and the Bratislava-based international house of arts for children Bibiana, was ceremonially opened on Tuesday, April 17.

The opening took place by the statue of Andersen on Hviezdoslavovo Square in Bratislava, with Danish Ambassador Anita Hugau, Bibiana director Peter Tvrdoň and a host of diplomats and other figures in attendance.

The event takes place during Denmark's EU presidency with the goal of presenting Danish culture in the EU. The project has been designed primarily for children - hence the playful title Dínom Dánom, which is an allusion to a Slovak folk song of the same name.

Ambassador Hugau praised Bibiana for its long-term attention to Andersen's work, mainly via theatrical pieces and book exhibitions. Similar activities will also take place within the Week of Hans Christian Andersen in Bratislava.
