‘Heritage Day’ at the French Embassy and other institutions

‘Heritage Day’ at the French Embassy and other institutions

For the third time, the French Embassy in Phnom Penh opened its gates to visitors on Saturday to mark the “Heritage Days” event, which has taken place for more than 30 years in France and abroad. This annual event gives the public the opportunity to visit buildings and places usually closed to the public. Visitors were granted access to several buildings inside the embassy, including the ambassador’s residence as well as a park where people could see the gate that protected many people during the events that took place in Phnom Penh in April 1975.
