Exhibition “City gazing in the lakes” visited Polotsk
If we flipped through the history pages, we would find that Latgalian Ludza and Belarusian Polotsk have a lot in common. The old cultural and historical link between them allows for a friendly cohabitation between the nations. A new impulse was given to this friendship when in 2016, the two cities signed a coworking agreement in the areas of tourism, preservation of the cultural and historical heritage, medicine, education, nature preservation, entrepreneurship and sport.
In 2019 yet another event fortified this link – on August the 30th, 31st, and September the 1st, Polotsk was celebrating its City Day-2019, and Ludza delegation went to attend it.
The initiator was Ludza Children and Youth Center and its director E. Obrumane. During the celebrations the honour to represent Ludza was entrusted to the folk dance ensemble “Žiks”, as well as to the winners of the artistic reading competition Liga Igovena, Alise Puzane and Yulianna Terehova. Apart from that, the delegation had also a team of young erudits “Lucin” from Ludza Middle School #2.
