Ambassador Radek Matula and Rector of Baku Slavic University (BSU) prof. Kamal Abdullayev opened on 20th May 2013 a new room for the students of Czech language. Serving as a library and a study room, the room will become an integral part of the Czech Language and Culture Centre at BSU.
The room has been fully reconstructed and newly furnished by joint efforts of the Czech Embassy in Baku and BSU.
The library collection has been significantly extended thanks to Senator of the Parliament of the Czech Republic Martin Tesařík and the University of Ostrava. As a personal gift, Mr. Tesařík donated the Centre approximately fifty new books - textbooks, different types of dictionaries and other special literature for studying Czech language. The University of Ostrava provided the Centre with tens of textbooks, special and belles-lettres literature.
Established in 2010 by the Czech Embassy in Baku, The Centre serves students of the Faculty of International Relations and Regional Studies (Department of Slavic Philology) together with students of the Translation Faculty majoring in Bohemian Studies and Translation/Interpreting of Czech Language. Currently, 45 young Azerbaijanis are studying Czech in BSU.
Except providing support for teaching Czech language and literature, and promoting awareness of history, geography, economics, politics and culture of the Czech Republic, the Centre also assists in creating contacts and developing cooperation between BSU and Czech universities.
