The culture of Lithuania is one that has existed for thousands of years dating back to 200 B.C. with the settlement of the Balts and has been independent of the presence of a sovereign Lithuanian state.
Lithuanian culture over the time has experienced influences by different traditions and numbers of factors that still could be felt at present.
Having survived many influences, which came with migrant artists, occupations, coercive or voluntary strategic political alliances, through cultural and scientific exchange, Lithuanians have been persistently protecting the identity of their traditional culture and its formative elements.
Still, you can find strong and unique Lithuanian culture in villages and small towns…Pity, that globalisation is doing strong influence to our culture….
This photo is made in a 100 years old village house…floor are wooden, squared with awe…old tile stove…and very warm atmosphere….
