"In fact, we reopened cultural and educational establishments too late, especially cultural ones, and we must do everything we can to open up those things that are extremely important for everyone (...), while following the safety requirements," Nauseda told BNS in an interview on Monday.
Access to cultural life could help people cope with the hardships of the coronavirus lockdown, the president noted.
The authorities should be flexible and decide on a case-by-case basis whether or not to allow an event to take place, he added.
As part of its lockdown easing steps, the government has allowed museums and galleries to reopen, but the ban on organizing events remains in place.
Last weekend, the M.A.M.A. annual music awards ceremony provoked a public outcry, with some accusing the organizers of failing to comply with the lockdown rules. Some called the event "a feast in the midst of the plague".
The organizers said all participants had been tested for COVID-19 before the ceremony and the staff wore face masks.
