Christ’s Resurrection Church in Kaunas is a symbol of the Lithuanian nation’s spiritual revival and regained independence. The edifice invites believers to cherish their homeland and their Christian roots, and reminds them that Jesus Christ is the only sound foundation for the life of a nation. Christ’s Resurrection Church is one of the most expressive modernist-style churches in Lithuania, characterized by generalized bulk composition, sharp rhythmic verticals and a distinctive staircase silhouette, in the centre of which a 70-meter-high tower rises up toward the heavens. A chapel dedicated to Our Lady of Šiluva graces the roof terrace, which also offers the city’s residents and guests a breathtaking panorama of Kaunas.
