Eleven years after joining to the European Union and a year after adopting the Euro as their currency, on 1st January Latvia assume the rotating presidency of the Council of the European Union.
We are excited to share with you this stunning video about the Inauguration ceremony of the Latvian EU Presidency decorations at the Justus Lipsius building in Brussels.
We love the tradition that Latvians have of dance and keep it alive wherever they go!
Once años después de su adhesión a la Unión Europea y un año después de adoptar el Euro, desde el 1 de enero Letonia asume, por primera vez, la presidencia rotatoria del Consejo de la Unión Europea.
Estamos encantadas de compartir este excepcional vídeo de la ceremonia de inauguración de la presidencia de Letonia en el edificio Justus Lipsius en Bruselas.
Nos encanta la tradición que los letones tienen del baile y mantenerla viva a donde quiera que vayan :)
"For the first six months of 2015 Latvia will hold the Presidency of the Council of the European Union. The Presidency is an opportunity to contribute not only to the political agenda, but also to inspire the European public by offering a wide and outstanding cultural programme.
One of the stories we are going to reveal to the wider public is the dance tradition in Latvia. We even made a real-life dance floor in the headquarters of the EU Council, so that people can try dancing the Latvian folk dance „Springuleits”. As to not make anyone feel left out, we also made this dance simulator! The beauty of dance is that it enables us to feel united and cohesive. So, can you keep up with us Latvians?"
