Nuremberg’s Russian-German Cultural Center Expands
Bavaria’s second-largest city after Munich, Nuremberg is one of Germany’s most beautiful cities and it has a 60,000-strong Russian-speaking population.
Irina Fiksel, Chairperson of the German Coordination Council of Russian compatriots, and a member of the Russian compatriots’ Coordinating Committee, heads the local Russian-German Cultural Center.
The opening of the Center’s new facilities allocated by the city authorities was held on June 21, 2008. The city’s entire Russian-speaking community was involved in remodeling and repairing the Center.
Officials from the Russian Embassy, the Moscow City Government and the Russkiy Mir Foundation attended the opening. In her address, Tatiana Bokova, the Foundation’s Deputy Executive Director, thanked the Center’s organizers for important work in preserving national culture. The Russian World Foundation also pledged to open a Russian-language Center for all ages. The Center already has a Toddler Academy, at which the Foundation plans to create a children’s Russian-language Center where children who grow up in foreign environments can learn the language in a playful atmosphere and study Russian literature and culture.
