The First Lady of Ukraine, Olena Zelenska, spoke about the Ukrainian audio guides which started working in two museum institutions in the Netherlands.

Yes, an audio tour in Ukrainian is available at the Escher museum (Escher in Het Paleis). It is housed in the Lange Voorhout Palace, which was built in 1764. Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898–1972) is an outstanding Dutch graphic artist worldwide. His works are distinguished by a unique vision of the world and play with the logic of space. About 120 works of the artist are presented in the museum, which represent almost his entire creative path.

The Ukrainian-language audio guide also worked in the museum of Abraham Bredius - a great Dutch art critic, archive researcher, publicist, collector, and philanthropist. Among the museum exhibits are the works of such famous artists as Rembrandt, Jan Steen, Aert van der Neer and Meindert Hobbema.

The project to introduce Ukrainian audio guides in the world's leading sights has been implemented under the patronage of the First Lady of Ukraine, Olena Zelenska, since 2020 and already has 56 audio tours in Ukrainian in 36 countries.

Only last year, the Ukrainian escort appeared in the National Museum of the Czech Republic, the Museum of Immigration in Sao Paulo (Brazil), Schönbrunn Palace (Austria), the Historical and Artistic Reserve "Gobustan" (Azerbaijan), St. Martin's Cathedral (Slovakia), on the bus tour route Hop-on Hop-off in Oslo (Norway), in the National Museum "Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania" (Lithuania), Uluwatu temple in Bali (Indonesia), National Museum of Qatar.

"For almost a year of war, when the Russian invaders bombed and looted so many of our museums, we learned to especially appreciate art: so fragile, it resists war and barbarism by its very existence, it gives hope that the human spirit will always overcome destruction and brute force. And, of course, the world heritage should speak Ukrainian - the language of the country that is fighting for human values. Our project does not stop, because Ukrainian cannot be stopped," Olena Zelenska emphasized.
