Prešeren Day, the Slovene Cultural Holiday (Embassy of Slovenia in the Hague)
8 February 2021 – Prešeren Day, the Slovene Cultural Holiday – is a Slovenian national holiday that takes place on February 8 each year. It is marking the anniversary of the death of the Slovene national poet France Prešeren on 8 February 1849 and is the celebration of the Slovenian culture. On February 7, the eve of the holiday, the Prešeren Awards and the Prešeren Fund Awards, the highest Slovenian recognitions for cultural achievements, are conferred.
Join us in the celebration of Prešeren Day and visit Creative Forum.Si (FB @creativeforumsi) where you will find the e-catalog and a virtual exhibition of 25 Slovene fine artists, who contributed 40 works of art to THE NEW WAVE collection which in 2020 enriched the permanent artistic collection of the Slovene Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
