Turkey opens culture center in Constanta (Romania)

Turkey’s Culture and Tourism Minister Ertuğrul Günay on Monday inaugurated a culture center in Constanta, Romania. “The Yunus Emre Culture Center in Constanta is the 17th of such centers the Yunus Emre Institute has opened in the world, and I believe that number will go up as high as 25 by the end of 2012 with new centers in Paris, Berlin, Delhi and Moscow,” Günay told reporters during the opening ceremony.

Günay said the Yunus Emre Culture Center in Constanta would not only serve as a Turkish language learning site, but it will also serve as a tourism office to promote Turkey’s tourism riches. Musical and artistic Turkish cultural events will be presented to the audiences in this center. Minister Günay said he appreciates Constanta mayor’s support in strengthening peace and dialogue among people from different cultural backgrounds, adding: “I would like to mention that Turkey is seventh in the world for the number of tourists it receives. We [Turkey] host more than 300,000 Romanian citizens every year. This center will also serve as a tourism guide for people in Romania.”
