We are pleased to welcome you at the official website of the Belarusian People’s Embassy to Republic of Lithuania.
We hope that this page will serve as your gateway to Belarus, providing you with the vital knowledge on Belarusian people, language, culture and customs. In addition you can learn more about how the Belarusians residing in Lithuania represent the country institutionally.
As of now, about 40,000 Belarusians call Lithuania their home. Our mother tongue can be heard both in Vilnius and several other Lithuanian towns. The sense of common identity, as well as centuries of shared history – are reaching well beyond the borders and bring Belarusians and Lithuanians closer together.
After the world-shaking events of August 2020, Belarusians have finally came together in our common struggle for freedom and democracy. People and the government of Lithuania have swiftly reached out a helping hand to their neighbors at a time of need.
The key task of the Belarusian People’s Embassy is to represent the interests of Belarus and Belarusians residing or recently arriving to Lithuania, providing them with relevant information. We also plan on holding various activities and events in order to inform the Lithuanian society and all parties concerned about the recent developments in Belarus.
