As in previous years, several cultural hubs in Bratislava will be holding events as part of the Month of Photography international festival.

“On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution, we decided to include a selection of works reflecting the November 1989 events,” Václav Macek, head of the festival, said in a press release.
