Vilnius Palace of Concerts and Sports

The Palace of Concerts and Sports – an impressive, although derelict building – is situated right at the river bank, in front of the historical Gediminas Castle. Its curvy silhouette reflected the spirit of Modern architecture and the then trendy combinations of reinforced concrete and glass that appeared in the West. The spectacular shapes of the Palace of Sports remind of the works of the famous French architect Le Corbusier.
