My hometown may be small but it’s very cozy and was even titled as a Lithuania’s cultural capital of 2018. Let me prove you why. We’ll start from seeing world known murals in Marijampolė, painted during six summer symposiums “Malonny” (Marijampole-London-New York) by NY-based artist Ray Bartkus, UK based Will Teater, Neville Garrick, Rachel Price Bacon and others. I’ll show you some sights, which were the key spots for modern Lithuania recovering from tzar’s Russia’s occupation at the beginning of XXth century. After the tour in Marijampolė, we will proceed to the country side! The best sight here is to relax in ecological alpaca farm located 20 minutes from the city. There is a possibility to buy warm sweater or socks knitted from ethnically sourced alpaca wool. The tour concludes in Paežeriai Manor, which was started to built in 1795 by a project of Polish-Lithuanian neoclassical architect of German descent Martin Knackfus, who’s projects can be found in breathtaking capital of Lithuania Vilnius old town. After the tour, you’ll be transported back to Kaunas.
