Church of the Resurrection

The Church of the Resurrection was established in 1940 but was not consecrated until 2004 due to the Soviet occupation of the country (1940-1990). The avant-garde design of the church, in the New Objectivist style, dates from the 1920s, and the monumental proportions of the church were intended to celebrate the newly gained independence (1922).

Choral Synagogue

The Choral Synagogue is the only Synagogue still functioning in Kaunas. Dating from the 18th century, the present building was built later in 1872-73 under the impulse of Levinas Minkovskis, a Kaunas merchant. The synagogue is called 'Choir' because the rituals it hosts are accompanied by singing.

Kaunas Mosque

The Kaunas Mosque was built in 1860 as a wooden mosque. Rebuilt in 1930, it is the only brick mosque in Lithuania.

The mosque returned to its original use in 1989 and in 1991 the first services took place.
