Thanks Liutass. That Art gallery look's like a render, very nice building indeed (and for some reason i never saw any pictures of this one). Maybe you have some more pictures of it?

And this one is really impressive building too:

Lithuanian pre-war architecture really kicks ass :)

i agree with both of you, this funk/art deco building is very cool, especially the entrance with those sculptures.

and that unfinished soviet building - i think this is a treat for a good renovator! i'm sure it will look super if renovated!





by the way... do you have a time machine or is it may already in lithuania? :D

Nice pics and review of Kaunas. I like Kaunas` modern architecture: BLC(?) building and art gallery. Old pre-war building is cool, but it needs painting.

Nice pics!
Why don't they finish this unfinished Soviet building or -even better- tear it down?
There are plans to finish them. Lets wait for the downtown development (Kaunas Arena 12.000 viewers, Akropolis, Domus Mea residential highrises etc.).

Looks like quiet and nice city. I like it. Especially I like the photo with the artgallery.
But that soviet building is pretty ugly! It must be demolished! :D

Pretty interesting. Many of the places are unfamiliar to me, not sure if snow makes them so different or I really haven't been to these place.

When you say downtown, is it the around Laisvés Street?
