Remains of Liškiava castle tower (South Lithuania). Castle was started to build by Grand Duke of Lithuania Vytautas, but not finished after victory in Grunwald battle (1410) against Teutonic Order. On the right there is Nemunas river and Dominicans monastery (18th c.) Photo by Balys Buračas 1929-1933.
