The Republic of Estonia is a country of thousands of lakes. The largest of them is Lake Peipus, which is the fourth largest freshwater lake in Europe. Estonia is a country in Northern Europe, washed by the waters of the Baltic sea, the Gulf of Finland and the Gulf of Riga and includes more than 1,500 Islands.

This Baltic state has a very fascinating and rich history. This has contributed to the creation of a special lifestyle for its residents, as well as the acquisition of a rich cultural heritage and the formation of amazing nature in the territory of this country.

Estonians cherish their national culture, traditions and folklore for many centuries. At the VI CIOFF® World Folkloriada their amazing beauty, diversity and color will demonstrate the team of the «Kiitsharakad» Folklore Group.

The group's performances are aimed at preserving and popularizing folk songs, music and dances that are passed down from generation to generation and are an important part of Estonian culture.
