Festival „Call of Polesia”
In order to preserve the traditional culture of the Belarusian region of Polesia, the Pripyatski National Park hosts the international ethnocultural festival „Call of Polesia”.
This year the festival will be held on August 15.
The “Call of Polesia” Festival is held every year to preserve and transmit folk rituals, folklore and crafts of the locals.
The highlight of the festival is a concert of various folklore groups.
The festival is visited not only by Belarusians, but also by guests from Ukraine, Russia, Poland and Moldova. The organizers expect about 30,000 visitors this year despite Corona.
Part of the festival is the beauty contest “Beauties of Polesia”, a military historical reconstruction “Battle of Epochs” and a photo exhibition “From the history of the festival”. The festival ends with an evening show programme and festive fireworks.
If you do not have the opportunity to visit the festival this year, you can discover the unique and wonderful world of Belarusian Polesia during an excursion to the city of Turau (Turow). You can find more about our travel offers to the region here.
