Through traditional national games, which focus on the characteristic national features accumulated over the centuries, the younger generation assimilates the cultural values of their own and foreign people, learns to respect the world around them, which reflects a pronounced national character, satisfies the needs for active recreation, the development of spiritual and physical forces.
