Audible to U, Ukrainian audio guides in world’s museums

The Warsaw Royal Castle and the Wawel Royal Castle in Krakow have joined the network of museums offering audio excursions in the Ukrainian language

As part of the programme of the Ukrainian Institute Audible to U, Ukrainian audio guides were created and launched at the Polish Jewish Museum POLIN in August 2019. 200 audio excursions have been developed for the main exposition. This is the second audio guide in Ukrainian in Polish museums following those at the National Museum of Warsaw, introduced at the end of 2018.

Audio excursions in Ukrainian have been recorded for eight locations at the permanent exhibition at the Warsaw Royal Castle. Visitors can now be informed about the exhibits in the following sections of the Lanckoroński Collection in Ukrainian: Rembrandt Paintings; the Gallery of Painting, Sculpture and Decorative Art; the Royal Library; the Great Hall; the Royal Hall; the Senator’s Hall; and the Mateоko Room.

“When you can hear the Ukrainian language spoken in one of the most prestigious museums in the world, it provides a boost to Ukraine’s international image and to Ukrainian as a popular European language”, – Andriy Deshchytsia, Ambassador of Ukraine to Poland.
