Kaunas Modernistic Architecture

In 2015 Kaunas was granted the sign of European heritage and included into the list of UNESCO design cities. Nowadays – this is an exceptional inheritance, witnessing the golden period of flourishment of the city, when Kaunas as a historical capital of Lithuania developed its modernistic architecture in parallel with other European cities. 

In Lithuania, modernistic architecture developed into its own specific form and is therefore called the Kaunas school of architecture.Do not miss a chance to visit the most important objects in the interwar period – Kaunas Garrison Officer's Club, Central Post Office, Christ's Resurrection Church, Vytautas the Great War Museum and many more.
