Kaunas and I

Kaunas is my hometown. I grew up in a family of artists, so I always saw Kaunas as full of culture and filled with great creative people and people connecting creative people. From the dance, music, textile and theatre festivals famous in Europe to the nostalgic alley of charming UNESCO buildings, and from a living heritage to modern transformations, I believe that Kaunas, which brought a lot of famous people into the world, will unite them again as a European Capital of Culture in 2022.
