At the opening ceremony, Director of the Hanoi Department of Culture and Sports, Do Dinh Hong, said that during his lifetime of revolutionary activities, the leader spent the longest period in the capital city – from 1945 to 1946 and from 1954 to 1969.

His profound thoughts, feelings, and instructions have been a guiding light for all the work of the local authorities and citizens, contributing to the development of the city towards modernity and civilization, he noted.

At the exhibition, there is an impressive display of over 200 documents and items related to the founder of modern Vietnam. These items provide insight into the revolutionary milestones that took place in the city, as well as the President’s connection with the local population and how his words have been followed by people in the capital.

The art space, meanwhile, showcases almost 40 calligraphy works that are blended with the iconic poems and life maxims of President Ho Chi Minh.

The event will run until the end of the year.
