Iran, land of historical, natural attractions

Iran's heritages and cultural attractions are adorable, said Juliusz Gojlo, Poland's Ambassador in Tehran.


Speaking at the opening ceremony of a photo exhibition of works by a Polish artist, Magda Hueckel, he described Iran as "the land of historical and natural attractions".

Gojlo thanked Iran's Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance Ali Jannati for organizing the program at Tehran's City Theater Complex to mark Poland Theater Week (Dec. 12-17).

"Poland has designated this year as the 'Year of Theater' to celebrate the 250th anniversary of theater in the country," he said.

The decision to stage plays in Iran came after a director of a Polish theatrical group 'Komuna' visited Iran one year ago, he said.

"He found Iranians very hospitable and generous people and recommend us to expand theatrical ties between the two nations," Gojlo said.

He added as a result of an agreement between the two nations, Poland staged three theatrical plays at City Theater, one of which was directed by Atila Pesiani — a famous Iranian actor and director.

"A street theater, two roundtables and a number of speeches were also held to celebrate Poland Theater Week," he said.

The senior diplomat said that such cultural programs act as bridges connecting the two countries and help improve relations.

An exhibition of works by Magda Hueckel is underway at City Theater. The exhibition features 34 scenes of theaters directed by the most prominent Polish directors during 2010-2014.

A graduate from Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk in the field of painting and graphic, HUECKEL has held exhibitions in Austria, Lithuania, France, Slovakia, and Australia.
