Zapyškis Old Church of St John the Baptist

It stands alone in the valley of the River Nemunas. Devastated by wars and floods, today it more likely reminds of Lithuania’s history than serves its function – the service in Zapyškis is held in the new church with the same name, which has been built in the town. The authentic Gothic church situated in the middle of green meadows on the river bank is fancied by tourists and photographers; concerts and the traditional Kite Festival are organised here.
