Excuse, it's more Lithuanian than Kaunas local custom tip. I will transfer it to my Lithuania page soon.

There were many information tables, like on my picture, fixed to a wall of old, historical buldings in Kaunas and Lithuania. Architecturos paminklas means architectural monument in Lithuania. Lietuvos respublica = Lithuanian Republic. Those table were always written exclusively in Lithuanian and often were the only source of additionally very poor information on a structure at place. Hmm... they were often not understable for me. At least a year or century marked in arabic were understable. Add here the Lithuanian word "baznycia" which means a church.

Do you want to learn basic words in Lithuania? Go to Foreign Languages for Travelers and click on Lithuanian flag there. This internet service allow to download sound files to learn correct pronauciation of words. Enjoy :-)
