French Spring cultural season opens in Ukraine
The sixteenth annual French Spring cultural season got officially underway in Kyiv on 30 March with a cocktail reception at Kyiv’s Premier Palace Hotel followed by a spectacular opening ceremony on St. Sophia Square in the historic heart of the Ukrainian capital. Since its launch in the early 2000s, the annual French Spring season has become one of the most hotly anticipated events on the Ukrainian cultural calendar. Over the years, it has expanded beyond the capital city to include events across the country. This year’s French Spring program features a variety of cultural events in Kyiv and eight other Ukrainian cities.
