Although nothing is going to quite replace the actual sun, especially during winter, there are modern alternatives to it. Light installations offer something pleasing to adults and children alike.
What is the most common criticism of the Lithuanian winter? Not enough light! Which is to say, winter days are very short. It seems as though it’s still dark on the way to work, and then already dark by the time you get home. Even during the day, sunlight often filters through a grey, overcast sky. Although nothing is going to quite replace the actual sun, especially during winter, there are modern alternatives to it. Light installations offer something pleasing to adults and children alike. Arguably, the most impressive of such initiatives is the one found at Pakruojis Manor. Standing in front of it, you’ll feel transported into the vastness of space, the depths of the ocean or… It’s hard to even describe. You must experience it for yourself. If Pakruojis is a tad too far away for you, why not enjoy something comparable at LUMINA Parks, located in Kalnų Park and the Botanical Garden of Vilnius University, as well as during the Light Festival in Klaipėda, or the Lantern and Light Festival in Rumšiškės.
