Cultural values and traditions are, without a doubt, one of the most important life aspects of citizens of the city. Here we should definitely notice the richness of the local folk culture that has been lost by so many inhabitants of modern cities. In Kaunas various ancient festivals, fairs and festivals are organized even these days. As a rule, each of them is accompanied with performances of folk groups. National songs are very popular in the country in general - there are several thousand of them. All kinds of fairy tales, legends and proverbs, the age of which is more than one hundred years, are no less popular.
Local people are very hard-working. This character trait has even found its reflection in the folk art. Most of the songs are devoted to work and labor. Even fairy tales and legends tell stories about brave and hard-working heroes. There are special literature classes in schools, during which children learn ancient myths and fairy tales, so even small kids are familiar with national folklore. Many national holidays are connected with various religious traditions. One of such holidays and one of the most popular festivals in the city is called Uzgavenes.
