About the project
On 27-28 October in Kyiv an exclusive high-class event will be held – the Charity Viennese Ball. As is well-known, this unique cultural phenomenon, wide-spread in Europe and in the world in general, is held in high esteem internationally. The Viennese Ball is a part of the international cultural heritage, basing itself on common European values. The attention of top officials of states, influential representatives of political and business elites, the most prominent cultural figures is riveted on it.
