12 February 2016

On the occasion of marking the Slovenian cultural holiday the Prešeren’s Day, a successful literary evening of Slovenian-Serbian poetry was held in the Cultural Centre Banski dvor, on 12 February 2016. Organisers of the evening, Association of Slovenians Triglav Banja Luka, Association of Writers of the Republic of Srpska and Cultural Centre Banski dvor, managed this time to host quite a number of audience at such an event.

It was an evening of presenting poetry of young poets. Aleksandra Čvorović, Tanja Stupar- Trifunović and guest, poet from Slovenia, Vid Šteh read their poems. Translation of poems from Slovenian to Serbian was done by writer Zdravko Kecman, and they were recited by Ljiljana Sukara. Special atmosphere in the hall of Banski dvor is not only owed to authors but also to an excellent pianist Hajrudin Muhić.
The attendees were welcomed by Nataša Kajmaković on behalf of the Association of Slovenians and the linking text was read by Aleksandra Čvorović while writer Zdravko Kecman spoke about poet France Prešeren.
Our guest Slovenian poet Vid Šteh was first time in Banja Luka. It was his first time to collaborate with poets of Banja Luka and that is exactly why we wanted to present him in a special way.
