The Marijampole Region, situated in the South -West of the country, borders on the Kaliningrad Region (Russia) in the west and on Poland in the southwest.
Marijampole is situated near the Sesupe River and in 1955-1989 was named "Kapsukas" after the founder of the Lithuanian Communist Party. More than 95% of Marijampole's 52 thousand residents are Lithuanian, making it the most ethnically Lithuanian city in the country. The history of the town should probably be calculated from 1792, when the town was granted town rights. The town grew considerably in the 19th century, stimulated by the St.Petersburg-Warsaw highway which was built through the area in 1829. Marijampole subsequently became a district center, and was particularly prosperous after the Kazlu Ruda-Sestokai railway was laid through the town.
The Lithuanian literary classic Zemaite (1845-1921) is buried in Marijampole, where she lived in 1921 after returning from America.
It's been quite a silent & a fuddy-duddy town for the past 10 years but fortunately the situation has changed. In recent decades, with the boom in telecommunications and in computing there has been a huge increase in the number of hi-tech firms in Marijampole. As a result, new shops, bars, restaurants and night clubs have opened to meet the growing demand.
Anybody can come here if they're looking for a cheap place to rest.
P.S. I had this man writing me he's thinking of opening a brand new night club in Marijampole, if you're still around, please, drop me a line.
- Pros:a cheap and a silent corner in the South-West of Lithuania.
