Exhibition of Sholokhov Museum in Prague

26.10.2016

On October 12, an opening ceremony of the exhibition “Cossacks in the novel “And Quiet Flows the Don“ by M.A.Sholokhov from the collection of the Museum-Reserve of M.A.Sholokhov took place in the Crystal Hall of the Russian Centre of Science and Culture in Prague.

The opening ceremony was joined by L.Gamza, Head of the Rossotrudnichestvo Agency in the Czech Republic; Archbishop of Prague and the Czech Lands Michael; M.Dzyuba, Ataman of the All-Cossack Union of the Czech Lands and Slovakia; representatives of many non-governmental organizations, residents of Prague including young people, school and university students. The Museum guides made an excursion about the exhibition and answered numerous questions. With great interest the visitors listened to the narration about the life and work of Mikhail Alexandrovich Sholokhov, about the history, traditions and customs of the Don Cossacks, about the Museum-Reserve of M.A.Sholokhov.

Then, in the Great Hall of the Russian Centre of Science and Culture there was held an opening ceremony of the IV International festival “Intercession Days on the Vltava-2016”. The event was organized and held by the All-Cossack Union of the Czech Lands and Slovakia by popular demand of the Cossacks living in Czechia under the support of Rossotrudnichestvo in the Czech Republic.

The big festival concert showed the performance of the folk groups wearing bright original costumes. Their folk songs were met with long applause. The audience was particularly impressed by the performance of Roberto Lombino, a blind Czech student, who, accompanied by accordion, performed folk songs in the Macedonian, Serbian, Croatian and other languages. Completing the concert the folk group “Cossacks of the Vltava” performed the well-known Russian and Cossack songs.

The exhibition shown by the Museum-Reserve of M.A.Sholokhov continued its run until October 21. It was visited by hundreds of schoolchildren learning Russian, students and residents of Prague.
