A Ukrainian-language Audio Guide to Appear in the Louvre
The Louvre visitors can explore it in Ukrainian.
The Minister of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine, Oleksandr Tkachenko, together with Ukraine’s First Lady, Olena Zelenska, met with the President of the Louvre, Laurence de Carre, and signed a Memorandum on cooperation between the museum, MCIP, and the Embassy of Ukraine in France.
The memorandum also includes an item on expanding cooperation and multi-level partnership projects with the museums of Ukraine.
They will include programs of scientific analysis, an organization of a temporary exhibition in the Louvre and a publication of a scientific study devoted to Ukrainian art. This is a big step for building cultural ties between Ukraine and France.
“Last year, together with Mrs. Macron, we opened an audio guide at the Palace of Versailles. I hope that now a guide will be added to it also in the Louvre. During the war, this project is no longer about a convenient tourist option. This is a sign that Ukraine and the civilized world have a common language. The language of art and culture,” said Olena Zelenska.
The Louvre is the largest museum in the world, it is visited by 8 million visitors annually.
