On Saturday, October 12, the Nansen Fest will be held at the Museum of Kyiv History. The festival will celebrate the birthday of the renowned and world-renowned Norwegian explorer Fridtjof Nansen. This is reported by Vechirniy.Kyiv. The event will be held in two languages - English and Ukrainian, as the festival will be hosted by Ukrainian and international speakers and guests.
"Nansen is known by everyone as the person who first crossed the Greenland by ski and dared to get as close as possible to the North Pole. However, do you know what connects the Norwegian traveler and philanthropist to Ukraine?" inform the organizers.
At the festival you will be able to chat with Norwegian scientists, taste canapés and wine from the Norwegian Embassy, and taste cheeses from the Swiss Embassy. Various competitions and virtual tours of Norway with VR glasses are also planned.
