26 August 2019     Championships 

On 25th of August, an accompanying event of the IX World Championship of Folklore "World Folk" 2019 was held. The event created conditions for cultural exchange and establishment of friendships between the representatives of different nations. 

Meeting of the nations is held under the motto "Friends in diversity" gave rise to international continuity and gave an atmosphere for endless fun. 

Within 15 minutes, each group has the opportunity to present the most characteristic elements of their repertoire and helped other foreign artists to become acquainted with music, songs and dances at a multicultural level.

In a really entertaining and engaging environment, groups from Romania, the Sakha Republic (Yakutia), Russia, Latvia, Mongolia, China and Bulgaria challenged their dance and music skills to widen their knowledge of folklore and to pass their folklore art, preserved through the centuries with desire and passion.

Exotic musical instruments, colorful folklore costumes and specific choreographies have been showed and practiced, and some groups have even exchanged souvenirs to remind them of the experience of the event that took place during one of the largest folklore forums.

The emotion of the "Friends in Diversity" meeting of the nations was captured with a common picture.
