We are millionaires!

I do not know any other country with less then 2 million inhabitants, own language and strong culture that can offer such a wide range of cultural events throughout the year.

Our main uniqueness is Song and Dance festival that happens every 5 years for adult choirs and dance groups and every 5 years for youngsters. That means every 2 – 3 years we have incredible festival that gathers around 30 000 – 40 000 singers and dancers for events that last one week.

Imagine ~13 000 choir singers on stage and same number of dancers!

Or 40 000 dancers in one concert?

 

Or ~17 000 youngsters?

The next song and dance festival will take place in 30.06. – 08.07. 2018. You have to hurry up and keep truck on tickets for the big concerts. Even you are not very lucky to see it live, there will be in total 54 events around the city. Many will be free of change.

Don’t miss it in  2018 because this year will be 100 years centenary celebration!

Please follow this blog and we will tell you about the main cultural events worth visiting.
