Outlook avaWorld culture festivals are a rare thing but they are truly valuable. How can you learn more about your own clothing traditions and the culture of other countries without such events? Also, they’re interesting and entertaining. We’ve visited one of these festivals in Kyiv, Ukraine, and now we are ready to share plenty of photos that depict various national costumes around the world. Most of these outfits are replicas rather than authentic costumes, but they’re made as close to the original folk clothing as possible.
