Czech Winter is coming to Seoul

On the occasion of the opening of the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympic Games the Czech Centre Seoul and the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Seoul present the Czech Republic in a container in the Gwanghwamun Olympic Zone placed on the square just in front of the main royal palace Gyeongbokgung, which is located in the historical centre of the Korean Capital City of Seoul. The container is open during this weekend from February 17th to 18th from 10 am to 8.30 pm. Through an exhibition of illustrations under the title “Winter in the Czech Republic”, which will be installed there, the visitors become acquainted with the history of winter sports in the Czech Republic, the most outstanding Czech sportsmen and moreover they can admire the beauty of the Czech winter landscape. The exhibition introduces a selection of the best works, which created students in the Atelier of Media and Didactic Illustration at the Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design and Art, the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen, under the guidance of a contemporary Czech author of the literature for children Renáta Fučíková to express honour to the Czech sportsmen, whose effort contributes systematically to a good reputation of the Czech Republic abroad. Through real stories of selected Czech sportsmen the authors endeavour to emphasize basic ideas of Winter Olympic Games and the highest human values. The visitors can warm up by traditional Czech hot wine and taste the traditional Czech Honey Cake every afternoon from 2 pm to 8 pm.
