Kaziukas Fair

Kaziuko muge big redIn Lithuania‘s capital, the ongoing festivity of the Kaziukas Fair distinguishes itself. First of all, it is a profound Lithuanian historical tradition which originates from the processions honoring Saint Prince Casimir (Kazimieras) held in the year 1604. Over time, the religious celebration was accompanied by commerce which eventually grew to be the colorful three-day Kaziukas Fair. With centuries of tradition, the displaying of original handmade products, the feasting on culinary heritage dishes, and the delighting in the Verba, a Palm Sunday decoration unique to Vilnius, the fair has no equal in neighboring countries.
