CINEMA. You must have heard by now that the award-winning Chernobyl (HBO) was shot in Kaunas and elsewhere in Lithuania. While a lot of work took place downtown, there is one object on the outskirts of Kaunas that also made it to the screen. It’s an old bridge in Petrašiūnai, where the scene of Pripyat residents watching the fire in the atomic plant was shot. A great spot for selfies – you will find the bridge by following the road signs.
THE GREEN-AND-WHITE LOVE. Žalgiris Kaunas is, without a doubt, the number one team in the entire country of Lithuania. And Lithuania on its own is one of the few countries in the world where basketball is the number one sport, often referred to as the second religion. The club and the fans have achieved outstanding results for all their work, and Žalgirio Arena is always surrounded by unforgettable emotions, no matter the game’s outcome.
