Lithuania is a country of basketball. It's our second religion. And Kaunas is the capital of basketball in Lithuania, so i'm not sure if ice-hockey is very big thing here But it would be good for us to make some progress in this kind of sports

Btw, didn't Sabonis want the arena to be located near the MEGA shopping mall? And the city wanted the arena on that island? How did they make Sabonis change his mind? And what will happen with that Soviet hotel bloc nearby?

Where are you from (interesting how do you know some of these facts)?

At first there was some ideas to built arena near "Mega" shopping mall. But i think Arvydas Sabonis would like it at the island more, as a lot of other Kaunas citizens. The island is in the city center and it would be very symbolic for Kaunas to have it's basketball arena in Kaunas heart. But there is a lot of discusions about that. Some architecs is doing all they can to change this project (thats why i hate them). If not all those discusions, the project would have been started much time ago.

Oh and the "Respublika" hotel... It will be reconstructed. It will cost the same like to built the arena - 200,000,000 LTL. There will be placed about 300 apartaments, big conference center, swimming pool, sports, healthyness and body-care centers, restorans, cafés.

Hehehe, I have been to Kaunas many times, I actually visited the island this year It will be interesting to see how they will cope with the traffic situation. Any plans to build a bridge from the south shore? Maybe I will stay at "Respublika" at next visit? :-D

You can see bridge is this rendering (don't know if it's just for pedestrians or not, thought):

Posted by blitz in: http://tinkle.miestai.net/showthread...ight=domus+mea

So maybe one day there will something like that

And the traffic situation may get very bad. Kaunas Arena and big shopping mall "Akropolis", which is located on the north side of the river and will be opened soon, will be the main reason of that. But, i hope, this will be solved out

Depends on when that visit is going to be, but one day i hope you will

Yes you are totally right But arenas aren't built just to be big, if city would need this, we would build it. Don't forget that this arena aren't built in NYC etc.

Most of the works in Zalgiris Arena is going on inside, first floor stands are being built, and in a week or two they will start adding roof and facade.
