Bilateral Cultural Relations

The 400-years-old historical relations between Iran and the Netherlands has paved the way for communications between the two nations especially in fields such as culture, art, sports, and tourism. Thanks to different artistic groups initiatives, in a bid to introduce the Iranian culture and art in the Netherlands, over 30 cultural events (on sports, music, movie, photography, theatre, painting, etc.) are held annually in this country. A good interaction also exists between museums in two countries. Without a shadow of doubt, one can find some traces of the Iranian civilization in every museum in the Netherlands. On the other hand, tourism is one of the areas having rendered a remarkable assistance in representing the two countries culture and civilization to one another.
