Germany’s ambassador in Bucharest, Cord Meier-Klodt, has recited some lyrics from one of Mihai Eminescu’s poems, “Revedere/Return” on the Romanian Culture Day which is also the great poet’s birthday anniversary. The ambassador has recited both in German and in Romanian, and has also inaugurated a mural art work in the embassy’s courtyard, featuring a stylised path that the Danube River is crossing from the springs in the Black Forest Mountains up to the Danube Delta where it flows into the Black Sea.
In avideo clipposted on Facebook on Tuesday, ambassador Meier-Klodt says the National Culture Day is a right moment to also celebrate the bilateral Romanian-German relations in the cultural field.
“I invite you to inaugurate together a work of contemporary mural arts that symbolises the deep ties between our countries. The work has been made by two young female architects from Bucharest. We have the Black Forest in southern Germany and the pelicans in the Danube Delta. And between the two points, like a bridge between our countries over time- the Danube”, ambassador Cord Meier-Klodt explained.
January 15, the day when great Romanian poet Mihai Eminescu was born, has been celebrated as the National Culture Day every year since 2011.
