As part of the project of the First Lady of Ukraine Olena Zelenska on the launch of Ukrainian-language audio guides in museums around the world, a Ukrainian audio guide was launched at the Maritime Museum of Montenegro (Kotor).
"This is the eighth audio guide in Ukrainian we launch in 2020. We are taking confident steps to promote the Ukrainian language in the world, in particular - in the world's most outstanding landmarks," Olena Zelenska noted.
Montenegro is one of the most popular destinations for Ukrainians. In 2019, this country was visited by almost 100,000 Ukrainian citizens.
An agreement on cooperation with the museum and implementation of the project was reached in July this year. The Maritime Museum of Montenegro is known for its collection of old ships and sailing boats, one of the richest collections of weapons of the former Yugoslavia, as well as the Maritime Library, which has more than 16,000 books.
The "voice" of the audio guide belongs to the actress of the Kyiv Academic Young Theater Olena Uzliuk.
"I am very glad to have joined this project. It is great that Ukrainians from all over the world can choose their native language to visit the museum. It would be very interesting for me to get to this museum. I hope that this project will expand and gain momentum," Olena Uzliuk noted.
The plans for 2020 are to launch an audio guide in the Colosseum (Rome), on the bus route Vilnius - Trakai, Trakai Castle (Lithuania).
