Ethnomusic and environmental problems – these are the issues that are devoted to Vyshyvanka Day this year. Ukrainians around the world dress in national shirts and dresses.
Vyshyvanka has been the main element of Ukrainian clothing since ancient times. Shirts embroidered with patterns are a reflection of the values, traditions, culture and history of our people.
By the way, it is celebrated since 2006 in the third quarter of May. It was as a student initiative, but soon was supported by Ukrainians around the world.
