"International Week" becomes "European Folk Art & Culture Week"

We organise International Weeks of Exchange that attract about 200 participants from 8 to 10 different European countries and, since 1971, we have staged 21 of these exchanges. At these events, we also organise markets to showcase both culinary and other characteristic cultural traditions from the participating countries.

Our 22nd “International Week” will take place in 2019, but from now on we will call it: European Folk Art & Culture Week.
