In October and November 2019, the Russian Culture Festival “Russian Autumn” is coming to Hong Kong for the 3rdtime.
From its inception in 2017, the Russian Culture Festival strives to become a Russian cultural trademark in Hong Kong. Its organizer, the Russian Club in Hong Kong, aims to showcase the rich Slavic culture to the Hong Kong community.
