The Literary and Art Academy “Country of Frankenstein” was solemnly opened at the Pedagogical University of Drohobych

On 23 May, the Literary and Art Academy “Krayina Frankiana” was solemnly opened in the assembly hall of the Ivan Franko State Pedagogical University of Drohobych.

The event is traditional and brings together scholars, artists and students of the alma mater. The Academy hosts numerous presentations of new editions, rich lectures and reports, as well as field trips of scholars and students.

This year’s Academy began with a minute of silence and a tribute to the memory of the fallen Heroes.

The Rector of Drohobych State Pedagogical University, Valentyna Bodak, then addressed the audience with a welcoming speech.

Traditionally, in May, Franco Academy brings together all those who care in our university. This year’s Academy surpassed the previous ones with its richness and number of events. All of them are aimed at honouring the rich creative heritage and scientific achievements of the great builder of our nation – Ivan Franko. After all, the spirit of Kamenyar is alive – it inspires and calls us to fight today. From year to year, the Academy “Krayina Frankiana” is gaining more and more scale and is becoming a powerful event in our region, because it is a continent for learning about the works, exchanging views between scientists and professing the postulates of Franko,” Valentyna Bodak emphasised in her speech.

The Academy was attended by representatives of the city and district authorities, as well as numerous lecturers and researchers from Ivan Franko National University of Lviv and other universities.

When the mayor of Drohobych, Taras Kuchma, took the floor, he thanked the audience for their titanic work in the field of scholarship and urged them to read and re-read Franko.


As the Academy will last until the end of May, scholars will have the opportunity to exchange experiences during numerous presentations of new works and monographs, visit places associated with Franko, and discover the Drohobych region from a new perspective.
