Thanks. This is not finished, i accept all remarks, simply those things related to formatting can do anybody, if the information itself is already added. I'm adding info first, then editing it. It's only matter of time. And, btw, would be nice if somebody could edit my language, i mean English. Without distortion of meaning. Would be great.--Local 16:15, 26 March 2013 (EDT)
Thanks. I've noticed about signing, just i saw that others have signed and nobody edited this, so was not sure about it. Format of phone numbers is clear now and i edited all of them (added by me), this should be ok since now on. And i edited "street" -> "St". Here is one thing which i'm not sure about (in any case i don't want to violate any rules of wikitravel) - standard abbreviation "st." in lithuanian means "stotis" which means "station". If it is included in the street address it means station. What if someone decide to use it as a street address, to send a letter, parcel and such? Also, I’ve read the rules, but still not sure: should I delete all zip-codes? Another thing – about “Pilgrimages” . Maybe some additional explanation is required, but Kaziukas fair is a craft fair and is celebrated according to pagan traditions and marks the beginning of spring . The month of March in lith is kovas, means rook, March 4 is called Rook Day, these 2 commemorations are merged (same like midsummer day or Xmas Eve). King Casimir was very religious in a positive sense, but this fair is not a pilgrimage in any way. For pilgrimage there may be added St. Casimir’s chapel in Vilnius cathedral (Casimir sarcophagus is there), this would be adequate. And why Song Festival is added there? It may be called even political, but not religious . “Pilgrimages” could be enriched by expanding Šiluva, for example, maybe some other things can be added (The way of the Cross in Vilnius Calvarias, Pivašiūnai, Krekenava, Trakai… it is 23 spots total), but I don’t care about it much as religious people know that better than any tourists, this info is not very essential until other sections are not expanded to adequate proportion --Local (talk) 03:54, 29 March 2013 (EDT)
So the question why Kaziukas and Song festival should be in Pilgrimage section is still relevant, maybe my understanding of concept is wrong. Also, could anybody describe this spruce with 18 trunks, i'd want to add it to "Nature objects", but we have 1 word to describe such kind of trees, i have no clue how it is called in EN. The tree is spruce, it's called "Raganų eglė" - literally translates as "Spruce of Witches" (usually literal translation is not smooth), any minor lesson of EN would be great, or just add a proper description into "Nature objects". --Local (talk) 04:17, 31 March 2013 (EDT)
