On May 27, the Czech Republic held a festival of national minorities with the theme "Prague - Heart of Nations".
The event attracted more than 30 delegations representing ethnic minorities from 20 countries living in this Central European country.
Right after the parade from Prague City Hall through the old streets, 2 central squares Staromestske and Wenceslas, the delegations brought Czech people and visitors the cultural specialties of each nation.
The Vietnamese delegation made a strong impression at this year's festival with a large number of participants. They bring vibrant performances imbued with national traditions such as drum performances, Hue royal dance, and fan dance.
Visitors are especially excited to see a female dance team dressed in traditional red ao dai perform folk dances and sing Vietnamese songs.
Nguyen Thi Dieu Linh, head of the organizing committee of the Vietnamese delegation, said the festival of ethnic minorities is an annual activity that takes place in the Czech Republic. However, these activities have been suspended for the past 4 years due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Therefore, right after the event was held again, many ethnic minorities in the Czech Republic, especially the Vietnamese community responded.
Linh added that this year's festival is even more meaningful for Vietnamese people because this year marks the 10th anniversary of Vietnamese Czechs becoming an ethnic minority of the Czech Republic.
The Vietnamese community in the Czech Republic is increasingly integrating deeply into the social life of the host country.
They made many contributions not only to Vietnam but also to their "second homeland," as well as promoting Czech-Vietnamese relations.
In addition to promoting the integration process, the community also pays attention to maintaining and preserving traditional cultural values. The festival of ethnic minorities in the Czech Republic is an opportunity for the Vietnamese community to promote the beauty of culture to Czech friends and tourists.
This year's festival takes place from May 25-28, including music and dance programs, performances of national costumes, and exhibitions of unique handicraft products of each ethnic group.
