The International Forum: fortifying the positions of the Russian language and culture

The Russkiy Mir Foundation is a Russian governmental organisation dedicated to promoting the Russian language and culture around the world. The Foundation has working Russian Centres in multiple countries, including one at the Sofia City Library.

On 6-10 July 2013 the library's Russian Centre runs a conference called the International Forum. Aimed at Russian-speaking teachers and university lecturers, the conference includes lecture days as well as visits to Bulgaria's tourist attractions.

The opening of the conference.

This year's conference has got around 130 participants, mostly from Bulgaria and Russia, although a few people from other countries, e.g. Kazachstan, Estonia, Turkey, are also present. We helped the library, our current employer, to set up the opening of the conference and, along with the guests, visited a few tourist attractions.
