Rasos (Midsummer’s Day) falls when the shortest night of the year comes with its own brand of magic, recalling ancient pagan rites. It’s a time of bonfires and gatherings, folk songs and ritual dancing throughout Lithuania.

The Kaziukas Fair has been the traditional spring event held in Vilnius for about 400 years. The spectacular occasion dazzles all those who see it as the streets fill with woodcarvings, metal sculptures, ceramics and local textiles. Traditional country folk music and beer, of course, accompany the happy activities.

Lithuania welcomes guests from all over and always shows its hospitality. It is to be experienced and enjoyed.
