Audio Guides
Audible to U, Ukrainian audio guides in world's museums
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 –
In 2018, the Ukrainian Institute launched Audible to U, a long-term programme to create Ukrainian audio guides in the world's leading museums. The purpose of the programme is to promote the Ukrainian language globally, as well as to satisfy the linguistic needs of Ukrainians abroad. During 2019, Ukrainian-language audio guides were created and introduced at four museums in Europe: The Vienna Belvedere Gallery in Austria (see the Cultural Year Ukraine-Austria section) and at three museums in Poland.
