Aims of the project – to introduce the public to the historical, landscape and urban heritage of the cities and towns situated by Nemunas by strengthening cultural consciousness of the local population and by revealing the attractiveness and uniqueness of the region.

Activities of the project: Kaunas County Public Library, the organizer of the continuing project “Įsikūrę prie Nemuno” (started in 2012), aims to effectively and attractively present a wide panorama of the panemunė towns’ and cities’ historical, landscape and urban heritage by using postcards, photos and other archival documents published before 1945. Prepared in 2012, a mobile exhibition presents 25 panemunė towns and cities which impart a major importance to our statehood as well as cultural history and are situated in the territories of the present Lithuania, Belarus and Russia. In collaboration with various museums, archives and collectors we chose 320 postcards and photos which vividly illustrate the uniqueness, everyday-life, celebrations, urban and natural heritage as well as prominent people of the settlements. In the exhibition, coats of arms and a brief history of each of the sites are presented next to the old iconography.
An enormous interest from the local communities obliges the project to be continued. With this in mind, this year we plan to continue to travel with the exhibition around the Nemunas region, prepare an electronic version of the exhibition and begin preparatory publishing works. We intend to issue long-term value publication, complemented by modern panoramic photography taken from the sky, and images of the most important objects.
