Vienybes Aikste - Unity Square, Kaunas: 4 reviews and 7 photos
These wooden structeres, on my picture, were put by the mound - monument at the western end of Unity Square (Vienybes aikste). Well, I saw a lot of similar crosses and chapels (two in one) around Lithuania but especially at places devoted to new independance of Lithuania regained in 1991. Sometimes I got the impression that they symbolized more freedom or independance than any religion.
But I did understood, respected, supported and liked it. I was keeping my fingers crossed for Lithuanian independence in 1989 - 1991 and as great Polish poet and my friend Kaczmarski sang in his song "The fall of the Soviet Union" in 1991: "a neighbour Lithuania has its independence and I myself feel somewhat more independent".
