Close to the picturesque village of Bitenai in the west of the country lies this cozy open air gallery. Here you can see around fifty original paintings by artists from across the globe, each tasked with revealing the unique culture of the Lithuania Minor region. Originally coined in the 16th c to refer to the northwestern-most tip of the Prussian empire, today Lithuania Minor is a term more often used to describe the culture and tradition that is specific to this region. Arranged around the environs of the Martynas Jankus Museum, which celebrates the press established by him in the 19th century, you’ll find rich and colorful canvases. Strolling through the meadow or exploring beneath canopies of trees, you’ll find yourself encountering art. And once you’ve wandered through the gallery, you can head to the nearby Museum to more closely acquaint yourself with the history.
