Test your logic and problem-solving skills with Break free” escape rooms.

Stop by to snap a photo of yourself and your friends in front of an installation offered by Iliuzijų muziejus (english: “Museum of Illusions”). The museum, which will stay open until December 31st, 2018, contains  unique installations based on illogical laws of science at a first glance.

Such an informal and structured method helps to demolish barriers of uncertainty and fear, and develops understanding between different people.

Play a game and decide how the story ends with Emovents.

 Each participating team will take part in the triple lightning competition – they will have to plant a tree, build a house and sowe the lawn. Winners will be rewarded; as for the others, our partners promise new connections, ideas and never before experienced delights!

Learn about yourself and seek the truth in a game organised by Vaidmenys.lt (english: “Roles.lt”).

Role playing is an original entertainment that is based on communication. It highlights the relationships between players by providing a story and an intrigue. Most often, the purpose of the game is to collaborate or to compete with other players to solve a mystery or to uncover a secret. It is not only an entertaining experience, but also a psychological self-analysis – when playing with others you are forced to stand up for yourself, look for allies, lie to others or find out who is lying to you.
