Discover Sorbian Life

The forested slopes form a natural chain that stretches along the horizon, broken up by streams and rivers as they flow towards the faraway ocean. The landscape is dotted with fertile fields housing groups of towns and villages characterised by the red roofs of their tall church towers. Further to the north, the fields give way to a wooded landscape through which rivers and canals flow like veins – the Spree Forest. Welcome to the home of the Sorbs. The Sorbs/Wends have been living in many locations along the Bohemian border stretching up to Brandenburg for centuries, and the small Slavic community has preserved its language, songs, culture and traditions throughout this long time. Join us on a journey of discovery through the home of the Sorbs, the region of Lusatia in eastern Germany, in close proximity to its Slavic neighbours, the Czech Republic and Poland.
