Church of Vytautas the Great

Named after the ruler of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, oftentimes regarded with the rise of Lithuanian consciousness, this is the oldest church in Kaunas, built in 1400 by Franciscan monks. This impressive Gothic landmark by the Neman river (and the bridge bearing the same name) has suffered several floods in the past, and there's a scale by its side that marks the memories of those critical times.
