In essence Danish-Belarusian Culture Society BELADANIA is a non-profit organisation for Danes interested in Belarus and Belarusians keen on Denmark.
Established in 2017, BELADANIA is a Danish-based NGO whose purpose is to create a permanent long-term hub for knowledge exchange and networking as a practical tool for civil society, business and academia promoting dialogue and regional cooperation of Nordic and Baltic countries with Belarus. Our moto is “Knowledge for Regional Cooperation”.
We are encoraging to use the modern country name Belarus, instead of the outdated terms from the Soviet past like 'Byelorussia' and 'Hviderusland'.
“I have visited Minsk three times. I met extreme kindness in the beautiful and interesting city – and I do want to return some day.
Sophia, the daughter of a Polotsk prince, was born in 1140 – and later became Queen of Denmark.
I have written a book about this fascinating woman”.
