As Lithuania's industry and economy grew, its new (although, it was hoped, temporary) capital – Kaunas – witnessed a construction boom on a gigantic scale. Under the influence of western lifestyle and values, architecture quickly became one of the main expressions of modernity, as every institution …

An example of beauty revealed in simplicity, this piece of architecture earned a bronze medal and honorary diploma in a 1937 world exhibition held in Paris and called Exposition International des Arts et des Techniques. The road towards simplicity led through painstaking searches reflected in a mult…

When the Chaimsonai's private residence was completed, on the Maironis street in 1930, the new building was met with sincere astonishment by the city's residents. As the rest of the neighbourhood didn't commit to the building's owners race for new heights, this condo building remained unchallenged i…

The construction of this institutional building in the city's most prestigious avenue, drew particular attention. When it opened its doors to the public in 1940, just days before the Soviet occupation, the high-rise State Savings Bank building became one of the last architectural symbols of Lithuani…

This private residence, located next to a busy boulevard, rightfully draws the eye of many a passersby. The building stands out among its modernistic Kaunas' peers by its looks and decorative details, and breaks away from Lithuanian architectural tradition.…

The construction of the post office and the telephone station next to each other was not accidental. As the post office was being modernized, the need of a modern telephone exchange became apparent. The rapidly increasing number of telephone subscribers made a need to automate manual switch systems.…

Almost a full century stands between us, and the First Lithuanian Republic. It may seem like a very long time, and every monument that reminds us of that period is often seen as an outdated relic. The Central Post Office building, however, still stands as a perfect example for understanding the back…

During the interwar period, Kaunas not only became the cultural, economic and political centre of Lithuania, but also a giant construction site. From these tumultuous times, we have inherited a throve of architectural creations, but the people behind these monuments and buildings are often forgotten…

Obelynė is one of the most famous places that reminds us of Tadas Ivanauskas (1882–1970). And we do not have many of such places. Is easier to count them rather than name them, and one can get lost in the endless list of merits and interesting biography facts that the famous professor of nature left…

After making a fortune, Romanas Polovinskas, the co-owner of construction company Mūras, built a large residential house at the city centre in 1932. The luxurious building had a two-part garage in a private courtyard and a lift. The premises on the ground flood were exceptional because of their larg…

Adored by its contemporaries: “The noble and transparent style of the Palace of Chamber of Commerce, Industry, and Trades symbolised the flight of those three branches towards the higher, nobler shapes in relationship with the Mercurial services and free competition with one another (Ignas Šeinius, …

"The Iron Wolf", railways, metal-covered doors and the sleek streamline design inspired by the techno-aesthetics: a union consolidated by metal! What does it have in common with this building? Essentially, there is nothing in common but a persistent and strong owner that symbolically embodies all th…

“There was a large crowd of people gathering around the Japanese embassy, pushing one another and waiting for their turn. But Vilekas managed to get inside. He looked around and saw the gate far at the yard, leading through the garden. When he entered to the garden, he saw the kitchen door. Inside, …

There are two churches of Sacred Heart in Pažėrai village that belongs to Aleksotas Deanery of Vilkaviškis Diocese: the old one and the new one. It is a rare luxury for a settlement as small as this.
