Within the framework of scientific and practical conference Uzbek-Ukrainian Culture Interrelations dedicated to 575th anniversary of the great poet, thinker and statesman Alisher Navoi he invited students and professors of culture studies department of Kyiv National University of Culture and Arts to attend.

Inspired students, who were lucky to become the first participants of our project, left their comments about the event:

Anna Mulyar, 1st year student at Kyiv National University of Culture and Arts.

It is impossible to hold emotions and amazement at bay upon entering the Embassy. High official, gorgeous hall, flashes of photo cameras cannot leave a single person indifferent. Orchestration of the event was a pleasant surprise: teamwork, precision and consistency in work of orchestrators couldn’t have gone unnoticed. One of the brightest memories is getting acquainted with Ambassador of Uzbekistan Mr. Alisher Abdualiev. In conclusion of the event guests and participants had a chance to treat themselves to exquisite dishes and amazing deserts from Uzbek cuisine. Conference went on the highest level; everyone is content – what else is there to be desired? I’m grateful to the orchestrators for such an opportunity; I’ll keep remembering this experience and living through all the feelings and emotions for a long time.

Herhena Ivanova, 1st year student at Kyiv National University of Culture and Arts.

I really liked the conference. I learned many new interesting things about Alisher Navoi. It was a great pleasure to listen to speeches on successes of experts and I was really impressed and inspired by their colossal work.

Scale of the event was incredibly impressive together with guests present such as Ambassador of Uzbekistan to Ukraine, Ambassador of Turkmenistan to Ukraine, Ambassador of Tajikistan to Ukraine and many others.
