“Modernist’s Guide” is the newest route in the “It’s Kaunastic” series. Kaunas dedicated both it and “Wallographer’s Notes” to the city as UNESCO Creative City of Design. Love modernist architecture? The city hopes you’ve already put Kaunas on your destination list! An English-language map of the most important buildings of the Epoque will be waiting upon your arrival. The city was awarded the title in 2015; the main reason for that was the modernist architecture of the interwar period which itself is currently included UNESCO’s World Heritage Tentative List.
Kaunas – which will become the European Capital of Culture in 2022 – is increasingly focusing on its history that usually hides in the plain sight. “Modernist’s Guide” will make the acquaintance easier and direct you to further contacts.
