Nis City Mayor Darko Bulatovic visited today the French Institute in Nis where he was introduced to the activities of the Institute, which were aimed at presenting contemporary French creativity and language promotion. This Institute in Nis was opened in 2003 and it is one of the three branches of the central Institute headquartered in Belgrade. The institute is a showcase of contemporary French creativity – it organizes various cultural events. Then, it strenghtens the position of the French language and offers French language courses for children and adults. The task of the Institute is to direct to the the French university and scientific circles, and in this sense each year donates about 40 scholarships to Serbian students.
