Nearly all of the galleries change expositions regularly, thus offering the possibility to see works of many local artists representing different time-periods and styles.

Vilnius, the capital city, is a leader in Lithuania by the number and variety of festivals held every year, offering much pleasure to the eyes and ears of lovers of classical and modern music, theater- and cinema-goers, and fans of modern dances. Other Lithuanian towns also have cultural activities to offer. Especially many and diverse festivals are held in summertime. Jazz, rock, blues, alternative, and electronic music lovers will surely find one to their taste.

Once you have watched at least some of the works by Lithuanian filmmakers, you will surely be able to tell a Lithuanian film from others. Lithuanian film-making school is distinguished by its ability to look deep into a human soul.

It is natural that the absolute majority of professional theaters are concentrated in Vilnius; however, theater is also still alive in other, smaller towns of the country. Nearly all of the theaters regularly go on tours and therefore have devotees across the world.
