The “Kaunas of 1919–1940” mobile tourism route app is dedicated to introduce Kaunas interwar modernism architecture, which was awarded the European Heritage Label in March of 2015 by the European Commission. Kaunas of 1919–1940 had an urban landscape exuberantly reflecting Europe’s interwar modernism architecture. Today it represents the outstanding heritage of a flourishing golden period when the city of Kaunas was the temporary capital of Lithuania. It stands out on the European Union’s list of European Heritage sites because of the significant role it has played in the history and culture of Europe. Europe begins in Kaunas of 1919–1940!
The application introduces the history of 44 objects of Kaunas interwar modernism architecture that were inscribed into the European Heritage Label list this year. The mobile app offers different routes in Kaunas, including the city centre, Žaliakalnis, Gričiupis, Aleksotas, and Šančiai.
