On May 31, 2014, the European Delegation in cooperation with the embassies of 16 EU member states hosted the Eurovillage 2014 in Baku's old city.
From 11:00 am till 7:00 pm, the embassies introduced their countries' culture, music and even their national cuisines to the Azerbaijani public. An evening program with performances of musicians from the Netherlands, Croatia and Estonia ensued.
At the Austrian tent, our guests could not only get information about our country, we also provided them with apple strudle and Sacher cubes.
The Austrian street theater group Irrwisch, performing the show "Wegenstreit's Guests", proved to be a true crowd puller: Wherever Stefan Grassl, Rudolf Hebinger und Stefan Novak went on their tall stilts, the audience followed.
Finally, under the artistic direction of the librarian of the Austrian Library Baku, Ms. Shahla Gurbanova, students from Azernaijan University of Languages performed a Viennese waltz.
