September Equinox & Baltic Unity Day 2017

 

Let us celebrate the September Equinox and Baltic Unity Day on September 22nd at 20.00!


This year’s event will commemorate the Krikštai tradition as a unique part of Lithuanian cultural heritage. (Krikštai are wooden burial markers originally created in Western Lithuania.)

The particular part of the Equinox event will traditionally be the fire show where Neris Embankment near King Mindaugas’ bridge will light up with traditional Baltic symbols and various fire sculptures.

The sculptures of Krikštai will be open for visitors from September 15th, at Neris Embarkment near King Mindaugas’ bridge.


Discover Baltic culture in a modern way and step into autumn!
