STORIES FOR LUNCH: The Unity Square: the Witness of Kaunas History. Guided tour
Organizer: Kaunas County Public Library
Do You want to know about the changeable history of Unity Square? Do You want to try feeling the euphoria while celebrating the freedom of the state and experience the grief of losing it? If so, we invite You to take part in the excursion „Unity Square: a witness of glory and grief of Kaunas (1919–2020)“. You will hear how the oldest public power plant in Lithuania was blown up in 1944, where the „Unity“ tree was planted in 1931, who gathered next to the restored Monument of Freedom (16.02.1989). After three years of reconstruction this year, Unity Square has revived. Perceive the history of this public space of Kaunas, discover the joys and despair of its past, and gain strength for the future! Guided tour by historian Mindaugas Balkus.
