We are more than happy to announce that Kaunas City and Kaunas District have submitted an application to European Commission to become the European Capital of Culture in 2022. The concept of the programme is CONTEMPORARY CAPITAL. Once Kaunas (1919– 1940) was a Temporary Capital of Lithuania and that period had a great impact on the city’s development, culture and identity.
