House of Perkūnas

A house that preserves the spirit of Medieval Ages and Gothic in Kaunas is one of the most valuable late Gothic buildings in Lithuania. There is a nice legend about the small statue of God Perkūnas (the Thunderer) found in its walls, yet researchers state that the house built for trade by a wealthy city dweller acquired this name later. Today the House of Perkūnas belongs to the Jesuits, and educational programmes are organised in its impressive halls.
