On Monday evening Vrečko attended a concert by Aldo Kumar and the vocal group Gallina, the Culture Ministry published on social media.

Addressing the event, Vrečko noted that this year there would be many opportunities in Germany to meet and discover Slovenian creativity. The book fair will take place in autumn with accompanying events held throughout the year.

The concert was organised by the Slovenian Cultural Centre Berlin, which, according to the minister, will have an important role in event organisation and promotion of Slovenian culture and art in the coming months.

Vrečko is scheduled to visit the Museum of European Cultures and meet with Slovenian artists residing in Berlin on Tuesday.
