The Romanian National Culture Day, dedicated to the 167th anniversary of Romanian poet Mihai Eminescu, will be solemnly marked in Baku on January 15.
Mihai Eminescu is considered one of the most famous and influential Romanian poets. His romantic inspirations led to poetry which reinterpreted traditional narratives of the mythological, fabled and metaphysical.
Eminescu's poems have been translated in over 60 languages. His life, work and poetry strongly influenced the Romanian culture and his poems are widely studied in Romanian public schools.
The Day will be marked with a ceremony to be organized in front of the monument of beloved Romanian composer George Enescu in Baku.
Azerbaijan is a strategic partner for Romania and the relations between two countries are strongly developing in all fields. Romania has been the second country in the world which recognized independence of Azerbaijan.
Cultural links between Romania and Azerbaijan are flourishing and they serve as a strong fundament for closer interaction. Romania traditionally participates in several international festivals organized in Baku, including Francophonie Week, EuroVillage Festival, European Film Festival and others.
