Czech-Cambodian Photo Exhibition at the Phnom Penh National Museum

Have questions or resources regarding Khmer Culture? This forum is all about the Kingdom of Cambodia's culture. Khmer language, Cambodian weddings, French influence, Cambodian architecture, Cambodian politics, Khmer customs, etc? This is the place. Living in Cambodia can cause you to experience a whole new level of culture shock, so feel free to talk about all things related to the Khmer people, and their traditions. And if you want something in Khmer script translated into English, you will probably find what you need.

Currently hanging on the walls of the National Museum of Cambodia in Phnom Penh are rare black and white photographs of Cambodian royalty with Czech leaders, depicting the history of relations between the two countries.

One of the photos, taken in January 1963, shows then Prince Norodom Sihanouk with Cambodian Royal Ballet performers in honour of the visit of Czechoslovakian President Antonin Novotny to Cambodia.

His Majesty King Norodom Sihamoni is fluent in Czech having spent most of his childhood in Prague where he studied classical dance and music at the Academy of Performing Arts.

Another interesting photo that illustrates the cultural relationship between the Czech Republic and Cambodia depicts President Novotny congratulating Princess Norodom Buppha Devi, daughter of then Prince Norodom Sihanouk, for her leading role in a Royal Ballet performance.

The photos are part of exhibit Czech Republic & Kingdom of Cambodia – Ties in Time, which opened on Thursday in a ceremony presided over by Minister of Culture and Fine Arts Phoeurng Sackona and Charge d´Affaires of the Czech Republic to the Kingdom of Cambodia Vlastimil Tesar.

The Czech Republic & Kingdom of Cambodia – Ties in Time exhibition is being held at National Museum of Cambodia on Street 13 (Preah Ang Eng) in Phnom Penh.

The exhibition is open to the public until October 31.
