Embassy of Pakistan
The Pakistani Embassy is housed in an opulent yellow-brick residence with a mansard roof, characteristic of the residential appearance of this plush part of Watermael-Boitsfort/Watermaal-Bosvoorde. Built in eclectic-like style, it is believed to date from the 1920s or 1930s.
The documentaries being screened and the photographs on display will give visitors the chance to discover Pakistan’s incredible cultural antiquity and diversity as well as its amazing landscapes, culture and tourist sites. Precious books providing an overview of Pakistani literature will be available to browse, to the accompaniment of traditional music. You will also have the opportunity to witness how food is prepared and to taste selected Pakistani dishes. These typical recipes with their aromatic and spicy flavours will help you learn more about the country. Embodying age-old knowledge and expertise, traditional ceramics, pottery, engravings and outfits will open your eyes to an ancestral craft tradition that has been preserved from ancient times as Pakistan has evolved into a modern 21st-century state. Finally, photo booths will be set up allowing you to pose in front of some famous Pakistani monuments or to wield a cricket bat and pose as one of the country’s legendary players on a recreated pitch. Henna tattoos will also be available.
