From IBWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Dzūkian Governorate (Lithuanian: Dzūkijos gubernija) was one of the governorates of the Lithuanian State, a Russian puppet-state that existed in some of the territories of modern Lithuania in the years 1947-1949. The Dzūkian Governorate existed in the same years. Its capital was Alytus. The governorate was commonly refered to as "Dzūkija", although only some of the area of historical Dzūkija was added to this governorate as much of it was given to Belarus instead.

After the Treaty of Visby most of the territory of the governorate was added to the province of Vilnija.

Anthem

Dzūkija

Kiek daug gražių dainų,
Bet gražiausios mano tėviškėj.
Su daina aš gyvenu:
Koks gi tu dzūkas be dainos?

Vieškelio vingiuos supas berželiai,
Šypsosi saulė danguje.
Mes esam dzūkai, girių karaliai.
O Karalienė - Dzūkija!

Kiek daug žalių girių,
Bet žaliausios mano tėviškėj.
Girios oš, girios žaliuos,
Kur aš gyvenčiau, jei ne jos!

Vieškelio vingiuos supas berželiai,
Šypsosi saulė danguje.
Mes esam dzūkai, girių karaliai.
O Karalienė - Dzūkija!

Kiek daug gerų žmonių,
Bet geriausi mano tėviškėj.
Dzūkas paguos, ranką paduos,
Dzūkas tau širdį atiduos.

English translation:

How many beautiful songs!
But the most beautiful ones are in my homeland.
I live with a song -
What kind of Dzūkian would you be without one?

Little birches are moving on the curves of a wide unpaved road,
The Sun is smiling in the Sky.
We are Dzūkians, the kings of lush forests.
And the Queen is Dzūkija!

How many green lush forests!
But the greenest ones are in my homeland.
Forests will hush, forests will bloom,
Where would I live if not them!

Little birches are moving on the curves of a wide unpaved road,
The Sun is smiling in the Sky.
We are Dzūkians, the kings of lush forests.
And the Queen is Dzūkija!

How many good people!
But the best ones are in my homeland.
They will show sympathy for a Dzūkian, they will give a hand,
A Dzūkian will give you his heart.
