If you know a little bit of lithuanian history ,then you know how much lithuanians had to fight to be alowed to be such- to be independent.There are at least free memorials for independance in the centre of Kaunas.So as we,lithuanians, say 'let Vilnius not be angry, but Kaunas is Lithuania's heart. 'Its becouse Kaunas is most patriotik and most Lithuanian town in Lithuania.
One of such places in Kaunas is near the ('karo muziejus)' War museum.(Close to Vytautas Magnus uni.)In this squear you will find, sculptures, memorials, folk style crosses and eternal fire for the ones who died fighting for independence.
