Ukrainian-language audio guides have been launched on bus tour routes in three Portuguese cities - Lisbon, Porto and Sintra.
Ukrainian President’s wife Olena Zelenska posted this on Facebook, Ukrinform.
“How did the pearls of the Portuguese capital of Lisbon - the Belém Tower and the majestic Jerónimos Monastery - survive the devastating earthquake for the rest of the city 260 years ago? How can the millennial town of Sintra accommodate so many palaces? What does the country's second capital, Porto, have in common with the Eiffel Tower in Paris? Ukrainian tourists in Portugal can now hear the answers to all these questions in their native language. Because all these listed attractions now speak Ukrainian," Zelenska said.
According to the First Lady, the launch of Ukrainian-language audio guides on bus tour routes in these three cities in Portugal means “the number of ‘Ukrainianized’ world attractions is constantly growing.”
“So when traveling, feel free to ask for Ukrainian guides. This is how you create demand and personally become ambassadors of our language in the world,” the First Lady emphasized.
In this context, the President’s wife thanked the Embassy of Ukraine in the Portuguese Republic for active cooperation.
As Ukrinform reported, Olena Zelenska previously informed that between 2020-2021, 35 Ukrainian-language audio guides appeared in 25 countries; at least 20 more are planned to be launched this year.
