The official Czech cultural center is one of the most active cultural organizations in Bucharest.
Every year, it initiates and supports a high number of cultural manifestations. My all time favorite is One World human rights documentary film festival. Just make sure you don’t miss it if you’re here in March. Really, it turns my life upside down year after year!
And since it is such a strong admirer of documentary movies, the Czech Center also organizes individual screenings, usually followed by short debates on the topic addressed by the movie every Monday, with no entrance fee.
By doing so, it also manages to bring together weekly a small community of people who share the same interests and ideals and, most importantly, pretty much the same level of awareness and hopefully involvement in community matters.
The space is nice and inviting, so if I go there a couple of weeks in a row, at one point I’ll get the impression I am watching the movie with a couple of friends or my classmates.
The screenings take place in the city center, right next to an old and beautiful, but not popular enough, landmark of the city, recommended by another one of our spotters – The Russian Church (check the St. Nicholas Church article).
