About Us Cultural Cooperation

In June 2010 India and Croatia signed a Programme for Cooperation in the field of Culture for 2010-12. A three-member Indian Writers' delegation visited Croatia in October 2012 under this Programme. A number of Croatian students have learnt various forms of Indian classical dance in reputed Indian schools under scholarships from the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) as well as on self-financing basis. The ICCR set up a Hindi Chair at the Indology Department of the University of Zagreb in 2009. This was given a formal shape through the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the ICCR and the University of Zagreb in October 2012.
