Authentic folk Traditions - The song remains the same

Visitors will observe that Lithuania has maintained much of its ethnographical character, visible in cities as well as the countryside. Lithuanians are proud of their national traditions that often involve pre-Christian elements. An important part of the heritage is folk songs, which are celebrated every four years in widely attended song and dance festivals. Lithuanian song festivals, along with similar festivals in the neighbouring Baltic States, have received international recognition with UNESCO putting them on its list of Masterpieces of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity. Moreover traditional Lithuanian handicrafts, typically amber, wood and linen articles make great souvenirs
