‘Vilnius is in a geographical location that makes it a major intercontinental transport hub, but its potential has not yet been fully realised, for reasons related to politics. The intersection of major routes provides an impetus for our capital’s development and growth,’ wrote the Vilnius city architect Vytautas Landsbergis-Žemkalnis in 1940.
Some of the projects in Vilnius seem to have had a spell cast over them: the visions of Lukiškių Square, Tauras Hill, the stadium and various memorials were subjected to heated discussion in the last century, and still provoke public debate today.
