“GeoNight” in Tytuvėnai
For the first time Tytuvėnai cultural center joined the international platform of public events promoting geography “European Geography Night“. Three events took place on April 14.
First of all, Tytuvėnai Gymnasium students and their geography teacher Rosita Marcinkienė were invited to take part in a geography knowledge quiz. Five teams of gymnasium students competed hard and finally there was no one winner, because two teams were always going hand in hand and had the same number of points.
Tytuvėnai Gymnasium art teacher Danguolė Žukauskienė has prepared an exhibition of students’ drawings “Colours of my Land”, which was presented to the community of the gymnasium: students, teachers and parents. Children depicted the countries they have already visited or would like to visit in the future.

The evening was devoted to a cosy meeting with long-time journalist and traveller Nijolė Petrošiūtė, who told the local community about her journeys. Nijolė Petrošiūtė had approximately 70 travels, so she amiably shared her experience, practical travel tips, most memorable moments and answered a lot of curious questions. Participants had the opportunity to see the collection of photographs of various places around the world. The evening was hosted and all the events of this project in Tytuvėnai were arranged by the cultural center event organiser Monika Sakienė.
