In the heart of Kaunas, the Vytautas the Great War Museum stands as a testament to Lithuania's vibrant history and resilience. Erected on soil brought from battlefields, it honors the legacy of Vytautas the Great, a luminary leader who etched indelible marks in the nation's annals. While its massive edifice and accompanying carillon tower draw eyes skyward, the open-air sculpture garden and carillon bells playing myriad concerts offer a serene ambiance. Particularly poignant is the garden's tribute to those who laid down their lives for Lithuania's independence, symbolized by traditional wooden crosses – a Lithuanian artistry acknowledged by UNESCO. The museum unfolds tales of ancient excavations, revolutionary arms, and milestones like the 1933 Lituanica transatlantic flight. Amidst its vast collection, Balys Buračas' ethnographic photographs vividly capture moments frozen in time.
