Kaunas and I

Kaunas is very important to me personally. This was the city where I grew up and studied. This is where I live and work, so an opportunity to join the team of the ambassadors of Kaunas 2022 is really a special one. I am thrilled that my native city will so deservedly receive the title of the European Capital of Culture. It is a city fostering long-term traditions of theatre, music festivals and museums. Every year, it offers even more inclusive initiatives and celebrations. The most significant thing is to experience and try things as Kaunas has something to offer to everyone who loves culture.


Kaunas in my vision of the future is a vital, throbbing, creative city of free people, where everyone can find an opportunity to realize themselves. It is a city that engages. No matter who you are or what you do, it turns you into its life and helps you to realize yourself. It’s not a static, closed, divided into groups of interest city, but rather an open to the people and ideas place.
