Elektrėnai Ice Palace

The Ice Palace, reminding of a snowdrift, became an exceptional building in the then new Elektrėnai town. It housed the first artificial ice skating rink, and the shapes of the palace, although brought from other Soviet towns, fascinated local people. Famous ice hockey players in the world, Darius Kasparaitis and Dainius Zubrus, started their careers in Elektrėnai.
