VTV.vn - This Saturday and Sunday, there are activities to celebrate 20 years of Hanoi winning the title "city for peace" at Ly Thai To flower garden near Hoan Kiem Lake.

This morning about 10,000 people joined a walk for peace. A street festival was organized to create a picture of cultural diversity and to promote Hanoi as a destination for peace, friendship, and cooperation.

A festival featuring various art and culture activities will be held from July 13-14 such as music nights themed "I love Hanoi" and "Lightening peace" and an introduction to UNESCO-recognised intangible cultural heritage such as "bai choi" art singing in the central region and "nha nhac" (Hue royal court music).

Visitors will have a chance to enjoy dances and circus performances.

In particular, many Hanoi traditional foods will be also introduced to visitors at the Hanoi Children’s Palace from July 13-14.

Twenty years ago, Hanoi was honoured by the UNESCO with the title during a ceremony held in La Paz, the capital city of Bolivia. So far, Hanoi has still been the only capital in Asia-Pacific to receive the recognition.
