I am asking because thread about Lithuanian pre-war architecture shows large similarity to what was built in Poland at the same time (modernism of 1930s).
Only partially. In 1920 there was domination of so-called national style (tautinis stilius), but for a quite short period of time. It wasn't based entirely on barocco or Renaissance. This thing was more common in Vilnius (see Antakalnio school), only there were just a few buildings built and at the moment not very acknowledged as a good example of architecture of that time (they're in the shadow of Kaunas, especially when the "rumours" say that Kaunas can get Unesco status). Thats kinda sad, 'cause Vilnius obviously lacks of good interwar architecture.
More or less, during interwar Lithuania, there were more details taken from the folk culture (for instance, stylised svastikas-suns etc. this "trend" actually came from Kalevala / Finland) rather then barocco/Renaissance. Well, there were some projects (for instance arch.Dubeneckis) where you can find particularly a la barocco, but those projects weren't executed or realised in some parts. Actually, functionalism was the main style. Later (1930) some details/elements of "national Lithuanian style" reflected on interior, facade details.
Lithuanian 1930 architecture was based on Germany, Usa, Italian and paricularly on Nordic style (see Baltoscandinava idea). Mainly influence came from these countries (for instance, some projects were made together with famous Finnish architects), because majority of architects had attended universities outside Lithuania and those countries with all their "architecture fashion/trends" became essential in attempts to create "something own".
Talking about church architecture. Well, there were a few projects. Wooden church architecture in Lithuania remained more popular. But you know, we have never been good christians with strong interest in religious matters so the number of new built church is...not so big compared to other type of public building Therefore during interwar period were only about five church projects. In Kaunas - only Christ Resurrection Church, but it was designed absolutely in functionalism (some projects resembles eclectism(?)) style. All churches architectural projects and design were based on functionalism.

When I look at those pictures I feel a bit melancholic for the world immortalized on them so rapidly disappeard. Modern Poland it's so homogeneous comparing to pre-war period and past centuries. Surely ethnic diversity can cause some troubles and conflicts but it looks like Jagiellonian Poland stays deep inside my heart.
