“2018 will be a very important year that will keep all of us engaged. The centennial celebrations of the Restoration of Lithuanian State have already started, and Kaunas, a city that served as the temporary capital will often be at the centre of the events”, promise the editors of Kaunas Full of Culture.

Do you know, why Kaunas modernist structures are the closest to the definition of Lithuanian national architectural style? Or, what caused Kaunas to become a temporary capital of Lithuania and what changes to the city were brought by this? Why dance festivals are the defining feature of Kaunas cultural life, or when the streets of the city fill with jazz?

In the yearbook you will find interviews with Lithuanian Minister of Culture Liana Ruokytė-Jonsson, with Naglis Rytis Baltušnikas, the architect who designed Jurgis Mačiūnas square-joke, with a legendary sculptor Robertas Antinis and a bunch of painters, theatre personalities, and other artists working in such different areas as urban planning, photography, education and game industry.

Believe it or not, the 300 pages of the cultural yearbook cannot cover everything what is happening in Kaunas – follow Kaunas Full of Culture on Facebook.
