The ambassadors promise you the most beautiful and spectacular Event!
Amber, found on the Baltic Sea shores, was and is highly treasured and is the national gem of Lithuania. It is the symbol of our country and the soul of our people. We are immersed in Baltic Amber history and mythology, awed by its beauty and ever respectful of its amazing healing powers. Amber is used in the Lithuanian language for all sorts of reasons: people’s names, restaurants, hotels, festivals, museums and more.
Therefore this special symbol was chosen to name this beautiful figure skating event taking place in Lithuania for the very first time.
