It’s Thursday and time for our report about the cultural and entertainment events coming up in the next few days.
Event: Photo exhibition „The Kalash“
Place: Ethnographic Museum
Time: open until 10th March, Tuesday-Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm, Sunday from 9 am to 2 pm
Konstantin Novakovic’s exhibition depicts the mysterious tribe the Kalash, an indigenous people living in the remote mountain valleys of northern Pakistan. Members of this ancient tribe hold on to their own religious beliefs, along with their own identity, the way of life and language. The Kalash people are noted for their fair skin and blue eyes, leading to a popular hypothesis that they are descendants of Alexander the Great’s soldiers who followed him on his campaign in India.
