2018 was very important for Lithuania, as it remind us that restored Lithuania has 100 years! It is important to think about all historic events which became a part of our freedom and it is important to mention music band “Antis”, which motivated young people to fight for the freedom with the music. The line from their song, which was written 30 years ago, “a lot of pigeons live in Ukmerge”, became reality. 15 sculptures of pigeons were created during the art camp in 2016. Every pigeon next to itself has metal table with the authors’ names and surnames and QR code, which you can scan and hear the songs matched to pigeons.  The main aim of this route is motivate people to grow independence feeling in their selves with the Lithuanian music and birds, which symbolize freedom. Pigeons of Ukmerge have magic powers, so if you will do special rituals while visiting it you will attract love, wisdom and luck to your life.
