On the Wings of White Stork. NAISIAI COMMUNITY (Lt)
While nobody in the world takes care about protection of personal life of storks, one can enjoy live broadcasting online right from the nest! serial! Culture is not strange for the countrymen – every Friday they attend musical evenings, or local theatre. All the excursions for the incoming tourists are also arranged by volunteers from Naisiai for free. But the most important thing is that Naisiai not only follows social values, but rather dictates them. Every July Naisiai Summer Festival takes place in the village and attracts families with children from whole Lithuania with rich music and sports program. “No alcohol” is the main rule of attending this event, just pure being with the families, enjoying the meaningful spare time together. Country in Lithuania as well as in other countries has faced the revaluation of values, met hard economical and social challenges. Consequently it almost lost its idyllic image. That is why example of Naisiai is so valuable. It is like second breath of the things, which are not lost yet and which could be successfully found in the village with the help of tourism – physical activity, healthy nutrition, hand work, being in nature, strong sense of belonging to community, cultural life… “We can find or create our own Naisiai everywhere, where morning starts with the cock’s crow, birds wash themselves with the drops of the dew, and cattle awaits for the first ray of light standing in the mist. Countryman is a child of nature, nature cleans his spirit, and evil in the countryside is condemned to be defeated. Naisiai is not only the festival or the serial, it is the acknowledgement that you love the countryside”, - believes the leader of Naisiai community R. Karbauskis.
