The intangible cultural heritage of the Trakai region, renowned for its uniqueness and abundance, is a bridge of vitality between the present and the past and the diversity of cultures. Those who travel there have the opportunity to discover their roots, their connection with the past, get to know the customs, traditions, music, cultural spaces of the Trakai region and many other things, which, practicing and enjoying them, contribute to the preservation of this heritage.
‘Discover, Learn, Preserve’ is the only project in Lithuania that introduces the intangible cultural heritage of Trakai and its significance for the identity and continuity of a community or a group, as well as the diversity of cultures inherent in the heritage.
If I were to invite you to a dance that revolves around our ancestors' love of life?
Would you agree to time travel?
Would you like to know?
Would you hear the consonants of generations?
Hearts beating as if they knew every movement of the dance,
Even though we are still learning from them – holding hands,
Absorbing the silence of the music and discovering the past, present and future,
Connecting threads of creativity and tradition.
The intangible cultural heritage of Trakai.
Let's travel and discover!
