Kaunas' Modernist Interwar architecture is the city's most striking aesthetic feature. After the First World War, Kaunas was Lithuania's temporary capital. With the authorities and the intelligentsia concentrated in Kaunas, and industry developing rapidly, new buildings designed by talented architects rose across the city. Most of the architects responsible had completed their studies abroad and returned to Lithuania with fresh ideas and perspectives. Be sure to visit the former Central Post Office, the Kaunas City Municipality, the former Pieno Centras milk processing plant, the Romuva Cinema, and the Officers' Club. These are just the tip of the iceberg of Kaunas' Art Deco- and Bauhaus-inspired architecture.
