Kaunas and I

Travelling the world, I notice that the second largest cities are the most beautiful, open and comfortable. However, I love Kaunas for many other things as well: I was born here, and I grew up here playing Indians with my yard mates while I was learning to play the violin in Santaka (Confluence), the most beautiful place of Kaunas and, perhaps, of Lithuania as well. That’s right, Kaunas is proud to have the confluence of the two largest Lithuanian rivers.

Our city has one of the oldest basketball teams in Europe and I can proudly say I am have been a sworn fan of the “Žalgiris” team since childhood. Today I am happy because “Žalgiris” has been trusted to create as many as four team hymns that sound in almost every basketball competition. I also have to mention our live legend of basketball, Arvydas Sabonis. When the people I meet in travelling hear I am from Lithuania, most of them mention Sabonis and Kaunas.

 

We have got festivals that amaze the whole world: “Kaunas Jazz”, “Pažaislis Music Festival”, “International Kaunas Cinema Festival” and many more. In general, Kaunas is always pulsating, live, honest, young and full of culture, and we must recognize that it has raised many prominent personalities, who glorify Lithuania worldwide.
