The condition of preserving and continuing one's culture is the transmission of the cultural heritage. The sense of the connection with former generations, the reliance in the local traditions and the ability of creating it into the future gives the effects of strong, not influenced by the trends or the flood of the global, mass culture ? cultural identity. J. Nikitorowich writes: ' identity can be described as the meeting of the past, future and anticipated future. Getting to know about oneself in the world of mass culture is important. Besides understanding oneself gives the chance to understand others, and it means the intercultural integration.'1 This transmission must concern history, tradition, folklore and the language.
