Chinese day at SEB

The 13th Anniversary of Confucius Institute at the University of Ljubljana

On Wednesday, May 18, the Confucius Institute Ljubljana organized Chinese Day at SEB, which also celebrated the 13th anniversary of our founding. The varied events in the atrium of the School of Economics and Business attracted visitors who were able to experience Chinese culture with all their senses.

May 18 is important for two reasons: Eighteen is a lucky number in China. May is the month of Chinese culture and this year we are celebrating the 13th anniversary of founding of Confucius institute Ljubljana.

With all the reasons mentioned we organised a Chinese day at School of Economics and Business on Wednesday, May 18th, 2022. Event took place in the faculty's atrium between 12 and 5 pm. We wanted every visitor to find something for themselves, so we organized various activities and invited guests from different industries.

In the atrium of the Faculty of Economics there were two stalls with Chinese food prepared by Chinese restaurants Halo Shaolin and restaurant Kitajski vrt. Visitors were able to attend a Chinese calligraphy workshop, where they wrote chinese characters with a brush and ink on white rice paper, and tried lifting weights by Chinese method of weightlifting. There was also Chinese tea (jasmine, chrysanthemum, Oolong and celery) and lots of fortune cookies. Memories were made at the Selfie box, where visitors could take a photo on the Great Wall of China! One of the more interesting activities was the VR experience, where visitors could meet a Chengdu panda in virtual reality, walk around the Summer Palace, ride in a bamboo boat or fly over the Great Wall of China.

Thank you to everyone who visited us that day!

Meet us at our next event - Dragon Boat Festival!
