Bells of Lemkivshchyna, Ukraine

Bells of Lemkivshchyna, Ukraine

Lemkivshchyna is the territory where lemky used to live. Who are those lemky? It is an ethnographic group which used to settle in the west Carpathians between Poland and Slovacia. They have their own dialect and different culture. They are famous for their crafts and many notable Ukrainian people came out from these lands.

This year it is going to be the 16th festival. Whoever participated in previous ones are looking forward to the coming event. Usually there is a big fair with many artisans involved. They exhibit their works ( embroidery, souvenirs, things that we use in everyday life). Also you can enjoy listening to the concert with more than 80 folklore groups performing. Definitely you will get a good portion of positive energy and will stay impressed for a long time.
