President Zeman opens Czech House in Belgrade

President Miloš Zeman and his Serbian counterpart Aleksandar Vučić on Monday opened the Czech House in Belgrade. The building, which was built a century ago by the Czech expat community and confiscated by Yugoslavia in the 1960s, has been repaired and will be donated to the Czech Republic. It will house the Czech Centre, Czech organisations and serve for exhibitions and cultural activities.

On a state visit to Serbia, President Zeman met with the country’s top officials to discuss bilateral ties, security and business interests. He thanked Serbia for condemning Russia’s war in Ukraine, saying its leaders could assist in the process of brokering peace.
