BAKU BAS-RELIEF TO OPEN IN ROTTERDAM
Baku, September 27 (AZERTAC). The inauguration of the bas-relief dedicated to Baku will be held in Rotterdam, a city in the Dutch province of South Netherland. The event will be implemented as part of the joint project triggered by the Congress of Azerbaijanis of Benelux countries and the Embassy of Azerbaijan to the Netherlands. The bas-relief will be set up on Baku Street. This street in Rotterdam was given a name of Baku when the first Azeri oil was transported to the port Rotterdam in 1950. Though this street exists over 50 years, most of the Rotterdam residents have no idea of the meaning of the word “Baku”. The Baku bas-relief will introduce the city to the local inhabitants. The inauguration will also feature a concert. Dutch top officials, representatives of Azerbaijan and diplomatic corps will attend the ceremony.
