Culture Night festival kicks off on June 14, bringing nocturnal art shows across Vilnius for the thirteenth time and offering over 100 different events, according to the organizers.

Various museums, churches, as well as the Lithuanian parliament, Seimas, will be open to visitors.

Culture Night festival opens up the capital’s squares, streets, parks, and the most unexpected spaces in Vilnius, filled with music, dance, theatre, cinema, photography and installations.

Other spaces include Smoke factory and the former War museum in Vilnius, which will host an entire Cultural Town on its premises.

This year’s key project is the performance by KTO, a street theatre group from Krakow, with its show The Fragrance of Time – a poetic piece inspired by the works of Gabriel García Márquez, Hug Klaus and Emil Zegadlovich, featuring a universal story about childhood, adolescence, fear, cruelty and love.

The colourful show takes the audience to a child's world filled with interesting characters and terrible situations, typical for a small town in Poland in the 1920s and 1930s.

Buses are set to run longer into the night, and all Culture Night events are free.
