HCMC is organizing a range of activities from November 1 to 10 in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the October Revolution (November 7, 1917-2017), creating an opportunity for the public to learn about Russian culture and art. 

A photo exhibition of the fruitful Russia-Vietnam relationship is on at Nguyen Hue pedestrian street in downtown HCMC.

The exhibition, scheduled to last until November 10, features100 photos of natural landscapes, unique architectural works and cultural programs of Russia, as well as the long-standing friendship between the two nations.

The HCMC Department of Information and Communications is joining hands with the HCMC Book Street Management Board to host the Russian Book Week on Nguyen Van Binh book street in downtown HCMC from November 1 to 8.

Students from Hoa Binh Primary School in District 1 last Saturday performed a 30-minute play adapted from the popular Russian novel for kids “Doctor Aybolit” by Korney Chukovsky on the book street.

“It has taken me and my colleagues much time and effort to prepare for the short play. I feel a little nervous and stressful as this is the first time I have performed before a large crowd on the book street but it is a great pleasure for me to get great applause from my classmates and teachers,” says Minh Khang, a fifth grader of the school. 

In addition, more than 200 book titles in fields such as children, fine art, science, technology and literature are on display at an exhibition called “Memories of Russia”.

Dong Khoi Street in District 1 was closed to traffic from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on November 4 to make room for the “Russian Days in HCMC” festival featuring artistic and cultural programs.

Vietnamese spectators and the Russian community in HCMC also enjoyed “Nights of Russian Love Songs” music performances at the VOH-Music One-Opera House theater in District 1 during from November 2 to 4.
