The European Union Delegation to Azerbaijan has presented the ‘European Fairy Tales’ project. As part of this social project, the Delegation translated into Azerbaijani fairy tales and legends from 27 European Union Member States.
The collection of fairy tales has been printed as a colourful book will be distributed in orphanages, children’s shelters as well as children libraries across the country.The book will help children in Azerbaijan to learn about the different nations of Europe, discover their roots and traditions, as well as European values.
To introduce a wider public to the magic world of European fairy tales, the EU Delegation and the embassies of EU Member States also prepared video versions of the fairy tales narrated by Ambassadors and other representatives of the Embassies and dubbed into Azerbaijani by professional actors. The video tales will be released daily on the Delegation’s Facebook page starting from 25 August.
The e-version of the book in Azerbaijani language is available here.
