Why locals love it

For everyone who reads Lithuanian literature, this place is like a temple. Artworks mounted on the walls of the Literatu street (Literatų gatvė) are dedicated to the literature workers: writers, translators, everyone who has link with Lithuania and is important for Lithuanian or world literature.

Why you should visit it

Art galleries can be oh-so-stuffy, so if you’d like to enjoy one without even having to enter a building, then this street is right up your alley. Varying in style and size, the tributes lining the street pay homage to poets and writers who have have influenced Lithuanian literature.

Special tip

There are more than 100 different artworks.
